The Electronic Pen is a conceptual writing utensil designed to make it easier to measure while you draw. The Electronic Pen was created by Jang Hyung-jin and features and LCD screen that displays different units of measurement. The pen measures as you draw, allowing you to accurately calculate length as you write.

Details on how you select the measurement the pen tracks weren't given, but I do know that this pen is recharged via kinetic energy. Simply shake the pen up and down to charge up the battery inside. The Electronic Pen is one of the many innovative measuring devices designed recently to help free people from the confines of the often-cumbersome tape measure. A pen that could accurately measure distance would be great for architects and drafters who often create their blueprints to scale, needing highly accurate and often minute measurements.
