Visitors can use a digital pen to curate their own collection, create designs and share their experience online.

Many great designs begin by putting pen to paper and the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum has created a fitting tribute to this with a digital pen that visitors can use to explore the collection and to project their own designs onto the museum walls.

“The pen is really a radical approach to changing visitors into participants. We want people in the Museum to learn about design by playing designer. Handing people a pen as they walk in says that they are literally able to draw on the walls, and create their own designs,” Jake Barton, principal and founder of Local Projects told PSFK.
