The Handwriting of the Future… | Your Therapy Source –

It turns out that handwriting may be making a big comeback! Years ago handwriting was an integral part of the curriculum in our schools.

Sourced through from: provides a review of a new Kickstarter development that supports handwriting, anywhere. Called the Phree™ , this new electronic pen records handwriting and shares it with  electronic devices using standard paper or any surface you can write on (your thigh, countertop without paper, refrigerator, dashboard, etc.). Touting note taking and handwriting recognition, the recorded handwriting or drawing can be sync’d to many different services and devices. The Phree does not record audio, however, used with other favorite apps and software such as OneNote which has recording capabilities, it appears to have potential to be another multi-sensory note taking tool. Here is a video describing the Phree™:

HT to Your Therapy Source for sharing this exciting new handwriting and note taking tool!
