We were already digging Smencils (pencils made of recycled newspaper infused with an array of fun fragrances, from cherry to chocolate). But these Smart Smencils ($45) are more than just an excuse to stick writing utensils up our noses.

When it comes to filling in those little Scantron bubbles, we'll take every bit of help we can get.
