Email and SMS Pen

SMS Pen

D:Scribe is a digital fountain pen that allows users to send SMS and email messages from paper. Just write out the message and circle the person’s name to send. This does away with a keypad and allows you to focus on communicating in a more personal way from anywhere as long as you have a bluetooth enabled phone and a surface to write on. The pen also records everything you write which can be accessed on a computer. Of course for the creative peeps, if writing doesn’t suit your fancy, the D:Scribe also works with genius and not so genius drawings of brilliance.

The design is loosely based on a quill and inkwell where by the quill is the writing apparatus and the inkwell is an electromagnetic induction charger.

Once a message is sent, the status is displayed on the built-in OLED screen. The designers have also expanded its capabilities beyond that of messaging. Should your home electronics and appliances be bluetooth enabled, you could potentially program the pen to input commands by writing in the air. A little abstract but lets pretend this idea is more a patent for possibilities.

Now this is a great concept. I’m extremely interested to find out if the pen will distinguish between different handwritings with reliable consistency. We’ve had OCRs and voice recognition software for decades but no matter how much progress have been made in terms of processor speed and increased storage space of the computer, progress in these technologies have stagnated for a good one decade. This will certainly be the major stumbling block for the SMS pen as well.
