Design Engineering Features | Motion Control | DESIGNENGINEERING - Robotic arm extend authors' signatures over cyberspace

The LongPen was originally designed to help author Margaret Atwood sign books. While on a multi-city, multi-country tour, the thought came to her that she should be able to do some of her signing from a distance so contacted Matthew Gibson and the LongPen was born. I has recently been adopted by the Government of Ontario for signing documents in situations where faxed or mailed copy is not legally viable. The device reproduces the shape, pressure, and cadence of a person's signature under direct control by the signer. Check out the video below for a demo.
