This product called Pindel was released in April and has the unique quality of combining a thumbtack with a magnet so that it can be used on both whiteboards and corkboards. The pin on the thumbtack will automatically retract if it is dropped so there is no danger of injury from stepping on it. Pindel is sold at Tokyu Hands and some Loft stores for 348 yen including tax. This product is only available for sale in Japan. Another unique aspect of Pindel is its design that features a cute pig face or emoticons.
