I did this about a week ago out of sheer boredom. And in the middle of doing this I realized the huge poly count. So I definitely scratched this off of the gaming agenda, unless your trying to mimic Crysis. Anyways, I know this is not a regular looking pencil due to the fact that the yellow paint comes to an abrupt stop, but it would be a mechanical pencil if you take a look at the back. It looks like the back it meant to be turned to extend the amount of led, or the eraser.
