You may notice that your cursive writing is getting sloppier, the longer you go on using keyboards over pencils and paper. The Handwriting Chat Pen draws from the more intimate and long-established means of composing messages, but marries it cleverly with modern technology.

Ren Fangying has designed a simple and streamlined-looking writing utensil which records your scribbled sentences with integrated photoelectric sensors. Transcribing each line into a sort of image, the device sends your notes to a friend's Handwriting Chat Pen.

The words you jot down appear along the shaft of your contacts' styluses, transferring them to your chosen recipient who is programmed as a tiny light down the side of your scrawler. Illumination indicates whether the person is also online, with her Handwriting Chat Pen handy and available for a literal conversation.
