Magnetic pen in $790,000 fundraiser may face ban
Ontario designer Andrew Gardner says he was just trying to a raise a little money online to manufacture his magnetic pen creation, and within two days had already raised hundreds of thousands of dollars, but he says his efforts also have attracted some unwanted attention from Health Canada. Gardner's Kickstarter campaign for the Polar Pen had a goal of raising $14,000. As of noon Oct. 15, it had raised more than $790,000. Gardner, from Waterloo, isn't sure why his pen is so popular, but suspects it has to do with the YouTube video he made.
