If your idea of fun is making brain-busting attempts at solving the New York Times crossword puzzle, you will appreciate the Chambers Crossword Pen.
More than a mere writing instrument, it contains a 250,000 word database complete with spell-checker and the ability to find missing letters in common words or phrases.
You should be aware, however, that the built-in dictionary adheres to U.K. spelling standards, which means “the purportedly true information that circulates via word of mouth” is a “rumour” not a “rumor.” Available from amazon.co.uk for £24.99 [via wired.com]. Happy Puzzling!
