Smart pen that vibrates when you do a mistake in spelling words!

German scientist Falk Wolsky observed that his 10-year old son was struggling to fix words with correct spelling for his homework.  Immediately he visualized a pen which could point out errors and correct spelling mistakes.  Falk Wolsky and his co-inventor Lernstift created a pen which would caution the writer if he makes a mistake in spelling a word or illegible handwriting.   

The device is a normal ink pen fitted with a special motion sensor and a small battery-powered Linux
computer with a WiFi chip.  While writing, the pen can be made to work in two modes with different functions.  The Caligraphy mode  detects flaws in form of letters and legibility.  In Orthography mode, the pen recognizes words and compares them with its own database.  If the event of words with spelling mistakes and unclear forms, the pen vibrates, indicating an abnormality.  The computer provides correct spellings for the words and hence the correction could be carried out instantly. 

May be after sometime from now, you may be able to replace the laptop with the sleek and smart pen for all your writing assignments.
