Lernstift

The first pen that vibrates when you make a mistake!

Lernstift is packed with sophisticated tech that recognizes all writing movements and lets you know when you’ve made a mistake – with an unmistakable vibration.

You can choose between two functions: Calligraphy Mode – pointing out flaws of form and legibility. Orthography Mode – detecting orthographic and grammatical mistakes.

When learning to write, feedback is essential; the sooner we get it the faster we learn.

Lernstift’s subtle, yet unmistakable vibrating sound, lets us know instantly and through sensor technology when a mistake has been made. This makes Lernstift a unique and effective pedagogical tool that makes learning a fun thing to do.

Error detection is only beginning of Lernstift’s history. Future versions will have various other features – e.g. a dynamic pressure sensor, a networking module to connect with PCs and other devices as well as an open platform for app development.
