It takes so much faith, time, money, and smarts to bring a product to market that I hate to be too snarky.
But sometimes I think items are a solution looking for a problem.
One example of either this--or of creativity in the extreme--would be the Lernstift--a newbie Austrian product.
The Lernstift is a pen that vibrates when the user makes a legibility error or a grammar error.
I have not tried it but it seems almost impossibly complex to detect in all sorts of handwriting what is being written.
Maybe I lack imagination.
What do you think?
This thing would drive me nuts. With my bad vision, my handwriting looks like I write with my elbow anyway--this thing would be shivering and shaking continuously.
Still, they do have computers that translate handwritten script, so who knows? For more info-- http://lernstift.com/index_en.html
