From Circular Stylus Concepts to Ultraviolet 3D Pens

 - Aug 21, 2015
From ergonomic stylus concepts to 3D pens, these high-tech writing utensils will transform the way you take notes. As many people abandon pen and paper for their digital devices, traditional writing utensils have largely been left behind. These high-tech devices demonstrate that the humble pen is due for a modern make-over.

One of the most interesting ways that designers have transformed our writing utensils is by making them more accessible. Beyond simply fashioning a more ergonomic stylus, designers have created pens that help those with physical challenges. For example, there are tremor-proof pens for those who suffer from Parkinson's disease, as well as oral writing implements for children with physical impairments.

Beyond a more accessible design, the conventional pen has also been infused with high-tech features. There are a number of different 3D pens that help users design multidimensional creations. There are also hybrid writing utensils that allows users to seamlessly switch from ink to paint.
