The D:Scribe is a pen that digitizes your writing to send as a text message. You write whatever you want, circle the name of the recipient, and the pen sends the data to your cell phone via Bluetooth, which in turn fires off the text or email message. The current status of messages is displayed on the pen’s little OLED display.

This post at geekology about a special digital pen got my attention. I love pens especially fountain pen. Since PC’s and electronic patient files a pen is hardly used anymore. I used to have a whole range of fountain pens. Since a couple of years I am the proud owner of a Montblanc fountain pen. It was a present for my birthday from my colleagues. I sometimes look for excuses to use it. May be they should invent a fountain pen for blogging.
