What's going on in Japan? (No.8)

It's an idea so simple, the mind boggles that it has taken so long to come to market: a slip-on fingertip calligraphy brush. Now, poets and artists of all abilities are giving the thumb's up to "Popcorn Yubi-fude," developed by calligraphy supply maker Boku-undo Co., based in the city of Nara. The brush offers a "new sensation when writing," Boku-undo says. The company, whose president is Shigehiro Matsui, reports that about 6,000 brushes were sold in the first month since hitting the market in April. The company says it is going forward with developing similar products, such as fingertip ball-point pens and makeup brushes.
