A pen that turns your writing into text messages

Sending text messages using a numerical keypad is a huge pain, even with predictive texting. And while getting a phone with a full QWERTY keyboard certainly helps, it still doesn't feel as natural as just using a pen.

That's why this D-Scribe is such a great concept. It's a pen, but it digitizes what you write, converts it to plain text, and sends it as a text message. No more cramped thumbs and no more annoying false word choices from some poorly-designed predictive text program, just writing messages and sending them. It's a pretty great idea, one we hope that becomes a reality in the not-too-distant future.
