Zpen goes back to writing days

Remember before the computer keyboard became a permanent fixture in your home? Those days, we actually did this thing known as handwriting, churning out character after character of uneven consistency, subject to the quality of our writing instrument and the surface it is written on. With the Zpen, you will be able to digitize just about every stroke you make for posterity on your computer.

Clip the receiver to the top of any piece of paper or notepad and it will record every single stroke the Zpen makes, even if you’re just doodling aimlessly. All you need do is plug the device into your USB drive and it effortlessly transfers your scrawl to your PC. If your handwriting borders on illegible you can even transform it into plain text once it’s loaded. It’s small enough to carry in your pocket, so if you’re ever gripped by idea fever you can clip it to a cocktail napkin and scribble away to your hearts content. It will even recognize drawings! It’s great to finally see handwriting play such a big part in a futuristic device like this.

The Zpen is a rather expensive casual device to own though, as it retails for £99.99.
