Actually I'm in this video. I don't care if believe me or not but I am the administrator of the UCPSB community and we have tons of collaborations like this.
Those pens we use actually are custom made. We take parts from other pens and put them together to make cooler looking ones.

Its pretty cool for the first 30 seconds or so but after seeing the same trick 15 times its very boring. I bet those people are pick pockets and/or magicians in their spare time or maybe they just like to give their woman some good finger lovin'.

I have to agree that this collab isn't the best one to showcase our community's talent. It's way too long and the spinners are a bit noobish. There a lot better ones that are cooler IMO.

There actually isn't technique to this. It's alla bout how much you want to practice and after that let the muscle memory take over. There are 4 fundamental tricks: Thumbaround which is basically spinnign the pen around your thumb. Fingerpass which can be seen in Goldeneye done by Boris. Except he does a variation of it where he skips a finger. There's also the charge which a lot of people can do. The pen basically pivots in between 2 fingers. It's hard to explain but it looks cool when done continuously. The last trick is the sonic, which is damn hard to explain but the pen sort of makes a jump from between 2 fingers to 2 other fingers. so for example from between the ring and middle fingers to between the middle and index fingers.

Hope that kinda helps you guys understand the basics a bit.

Slightly impressive but girls have usually shown their gratitude of all the practice I got switching the light on and off.

Those people used to and still do give me the shits when they're doing it in class and their pens and pencils go flying every where. Interesting in high school there was a correllation between those people and acadmic underachievment.
