This yellow propelling pencil has been made out of a polymer that is commonly called live edge Perspex and contains yellow fluorescent dyes. The intensity of light given off by the polymer is greater at the edges, for the light is gathered along the length of the material and emitted at the ends where the surface area is reduced and the fluorescent effect focused. Whilst the mechanics of the pencil propels graphite to the tip, the material it is made from propels light in the same direction.
