There’s always been something warm and comforting about a handwritten note. They communicate a sense of intimacy that messages on machines can’t quite convey. But what happens when a machine is doing the handwriting, and beautiful handwriting no less?
That’s the premise of the AxiDraw.
Robotic writing isn’t new. It’s got a particularly noted history in presidential politics, with Thomas Jefferson and Harry Truman proving to be fans of auto-writing machines. George W. Bush once commissioned a study into the constitutionality of the procedure, and it proved to be legal. President Obama has been a big fan of the Autopen, and ended up using a robotic signature of some crucial legislation.
If its good enough for presidents, the AxiDraw’s creators at Evil Mad Scientists figure, why shouldn’t it be good enough for you?
