Brilliant Tool Converts Typed Words Into Handwritings In Real Time
By Melissa Goh, 22 Sep 2015
‘Lazy Pen’ is a brilliant device created by designer Nicolas Nahornyj at ECAL, which allows you to create typefaces that look like handwritings in real time.
To reply the dozen of handwritten letters from his grandmother, Nicolas had decided to create a tool that combines the practical and convenient function of producing words with a computer, along with the personal and emotional aspect derived from one’s handwriting.
The Lazy Pen consist of a two part installation, a removable recessed block, and a solid desk with two trestles with a drawer for the computer—the computer sits inside the desk, while two 3D-printed mechanism protrude through the removable keyboard block.
The movable mechanism, which are placed beneath the user’s palms, are connected to two joysticks that converts digital data interpreted by Processing applications, which will distort the typefaces as the user writes.
