It all started with BIC Company.
The ballpoint pens of this company have always been very popular but it decided to bring about certain changes in the design of their products.
In the year 1991, BIC Company introduced a new design to the world which went unnoticed by the majority of people. The change was that the cap of the pen had now holes in it.
Why will the company go to such trouble? The answer to this question is that kids have the habit of chewing on about everything. Even adults love to bite the cap. Pen’s cap can easily get choked in the food pipe of a person and might also result in death.
The little hole on the top of the cap allows easy passage of oxygen, in case the pen gets lodged in the windpipe. Hence, providing enough oxygen while the ambulance will be on its way. Share this good news to your near ones.
