Kenwood GPS unit: the pen is mightier than the keypad

If you're not too tech savvy or fluent in the mysterious operation of paper maps, Kenwood's got your back. At the 2007 Tokyo Motor Show, Kenwood showcased a GPS unit that also comes with a pen-shaped scanner. All the user needs to do is point anywhere on his map and it'll show that location on the unit and help him get there. This would be especially handy if you knew the general location of where you want to go but have no way to find the specific address in a pinch.

No word on whether Kenwood plans to take this system beyond the conceptual stages, but we're curious to know what it would require. Would it take special maps? Most likely, but still very cool.
