19 Jul PenAlone, development of a writing and drawing tool compatible with arbitrary surface
Due to the constantly increasing demand for digital devices, smart writing tools based on different operating principles have also been developed. In the frame of Hungarian Contest for Young Scientist I also have developed a digital writing and drawing tool utilizing a silicon-based MEMS (microelectromechanical system) 3D force sensor. One can draw or write on arbitrary surface with this wireless smart device, visualizing a real-time image on the screen of either a laptop or a smartphone. Additionally, the thickness of the drawn line can be tuned by the pushing force as in the case of a real pen.
