Lernstift (German for “learning pen”) is a digital pen with a difference, carrying not only ink inside its casing but also a tiny computer that alerts users to spelling errors. This pen has two functions and they are the calligraphy mode which helps you correct individual letters, and the orthography mode which vibrates when a word is misspelled.
The pen was invented by software developer and Lernstift founder Falk Wolsky after seeing his wife’s frustrations at watching their son struggle with his homework. Why can’t pens give instant feedback on mistakes? she asked. The pen has been designed primarily as an educational tool and the Munich-based company are hopeful that dyslexic children will find the new pen particularly useful. This pen can help revolutionize education with dyslexic children.
