A ballpoint pen , also known as a biro ,  ball pen , is a pen that dispenses ink over a metal ball at its point, i.e. over a "ball point". The metal commonly used is steel , brass , or tungsten carbide .  It was conceived and developed as a cleaner and more reliable alternative to dip pens and fountain pens , and it is now the world's most-used writing instrument :  millions are manufactured and sold daily.  As a result, it has influenced art and graphic design and spawned an artwork genre .
A Hungarian journalist named Laszlo Biro invented the first ballpoint pen in 1938. Biro had noticed that the ink used in newspaper printing dried quickly, leaving the paper smudge-free, so he decided to create a pen using the same type of ink. But the thicker ink wouldn't flow from a regular pen nib.
