Air Pen

Write in midair!

A handheld "pen" or lightweight pump that, at the push of a button, ejects a steady stream or jet of colored gas from its tip. This gas has the exact same density as air, so it hangs in midair without rising or sinking. Potentially, in an environment without any air currents, one could write or draw in midair.
