Digital Pen Vibrates To Indicate Bad Spelling, Grammar and Penmanship 144

Zothecula writes "Use digital technology long enough and you start to become dependent upon it for such mundane tasks as spell checking. That means when you pick up a garden variety ballpoint pen you're back in dictionary and 'I before E except after C' territory. The creators of the Lernstiftdigital pen hope to bring handwriting into the 21st century by having the pen vibrate to indicate when the writer makes spelling and grammatical errors or exhibits poor penmanship."

    As usual, the summary is click-baiting us a little bit.

    The pen is only supposed to vibrate if a little kid/toddler presses too hard with it. In that context, that kind of instant feedback could make sense. One could put a blinking light on it when it's pressed too hard, but that little light would hardly stop a little kid from continuing to press too hard.

Somebody ought to cross ball point pens with coat hangers so that the pens will multiply instead of disappear.
