Vibrating Pen Lets Users Know When They’ve Made A Mistake
The Lernstift device acts like a virtual teacher, alerting the user when they make a spelling error or their handwriting isn’t legible.
Lernstift is a pen that vibrates when the user makes a mistake. It has the potential to be a great tool for teachers teaching children how to write, so they learn good habits to begin with, even if the teacher can’t give them one-to-one instruction.
More and more schools practice autonomous learning these days. Lernstift supports this modern way to learn. Not by telling you the answer. But by telling you: “Hold on! Something’s not quite right. Think again.” Lernstift is like a devoted friend looking over your shoulder and tapping you on it when you’ve made a mistake.
Lernstift features sophisticated tech that recognizes all writing movements and lets you know when you’ve made a mistake with a subtle yet unmistakable vibration. You can choose between two functions, either ‘Calligraphy Mode’, which points out flaws in form and legibility, or ‘Orthography Mode’, which detects spelling and grammatical errors.
The educational aid could also add other features in future versions, such as a dynamic pressure sensor, a networking module to connect with PCs and other devices, and an open platform for app development.
