How often have you demonstrated a shape, written something using your finger in the air or spelt something out on the table? When Richard started surface writing for his children, he had a lightbulb moment. What if you could write using your finger with a fingertip pen?
A fingertip pen seemed an incredibly simple concept. He was surprised that such a product wasn’t an essential part of every kids pencil case. With an idea of what he wanted, he started experimenting and having fun with his children in building prototypes from materials around the house. Getting closer to a final design, he arranged 3D prints of several designs. This enabled them to get really hands on in testing their newly named ‘Digi Pen’.
