33 High-Tech Writing Utensils

From Musical Writing Implements to Song-Playing Scrawlers

— February 20, 2014 — Tech
With technological gadgets seeping into almost every aspect of a consumer's life, there is no surprise as to why several high-tech writing utensils are emerging as a means to cater to this tech-savvy generation.

While writing down notes or messages is traditionally done with a pen or pencil, modern technology is advancing that process to a whole other level by making the act of writing even more convenient. A great way to infuse technological elements into even the most mundane of tasks, these high-tech writing utensils will surely make any note-taking experience more memorable and engaging. From writing tools that humorously vibrate to those that can record audio or play songs, these high-tech devices are helping to modernize the way people ordinarily draw or write down information.
