Pin Sprouts

Tack-pins or metal push-pins have come a long way from their humble round-head-design. For the sake of convenience, the flat-round head has been given a “sprout” look here. Convenient to hold, push and pull!

Plant them in, or pull them out!

Designers: Lim Ruiwen & Yong Lin

    This is really a good idea and the rectangle can even be smaller and unobtrusive than the circle design 🙂

    This is not a new one because Japanese product company "Plus D" already is selling a product called greenpin.
    I am curious which one is first.

    Either way, I really like the idea of a push pin with a larger surface, and a nice spot to grab for pulling out!

    Like the idea but not original. This version also is expensive to make (must be cast instead of the typical trimmed wire with metal/plastic cap).
