So, you have probably seen holes on pen caps and inferred that they are nothing but for some weird industrial design reason. Well, the truth is far from that because initially, pen caps didn’t have these kinds of holes and something happened that made Bic,┬áthe premier pen company rethink the design and introduce these holes. It was the numerous report of people choking to death after swallowing a piece from the top of the pen cap. Now what inspired them to do this act of madness?

So, Big Pen got to work and designed a new cap with holes so that even when swallowed and stuck in the air passage, they could provide necessary space for some air to pass through it.
