memo-pad serves as pencil

One corner tip of memo pad (papers) are covered with "lead"

Never be with paper but without pencil again.

Just use the memo pad itself.

The pad (i.e. a post-it pad of papers) has the corners of each page covered with an ink like material (perhaps the pencil lead). Then you just pick the pad up and write with it. Good for short notes needed to be jotted down on a sticky pad page.

       I'm looking at a pad of paper trying to visualize how this could work. I got nothing.

       Take the corner, and fill it with pencil (from the outside). Now write with it. If instead of the corner you have a portion made of this material (led) you have it going (won't be gone after first word).   

       I've actually tried it. It works, and I have a manufacturer who wants to start making them. Let's see how things go with this idea...

       How do you "fill a pad of paper with pencil (from the outside)?" I still don't get it...
snarfyguy, Nov 18 2002

       Hold the pad in your left hand A pencil in the right. Now start drawing with your pencil on one corner of the pad all around the corner (that makes three sides). You get the shape of "thick pencil point". Draw and use a lot of pencil so it is a "deep dark" color.   

       Now put the pad in it's cradle. (Just for showing how it works). Pull it out, tear off the top sheet of paper, and write on the sheet you just tore off, with the corner of the pad.   

       As my physics teacher used to say: "Moshe!, what is there here to not understand?"

       Maybe if you could draw it... I'm not saying i don't like it, only that I don't quite understand. Do you curl up the paper?
