About

What is Write Touch?

Write Touch is a device simply to mimic the ability of finger painting.

_________________________________________________

A Dream to Reality

Vape smoke.
Vape smoke.

A 2-year ongoing dream for a writing/drawing utensil that minimizes the stress and tension we all get from gripping a pen for a prolonged period of time. A project that was once designed for myself and 7-year old nephew who has a latency in developing motor skills, with starting designs, to using this idea and prototype for my business class in my senior year of high school, finally produced an almost-finalized product that mimics the ability to write as if you are finger painting. Simple enough, draw and write exactly what you want with just one finger, while the rest of your hand and fingers rest on the platform, or, for more precise writing, use your thumb as guidance, whilst still avoiding any tension in the joints and muscles! My hopes in this project is that all of you can bring this to life with me, mass produce to give everyone, who either has joint discomfort, trouble with fine motor skills, muscle cramping, or just the love of a finger painting style, one of these aesthetic-yet innovative pens.

How Is It Used?

Write as if you're finger painting! Write Touch (soon to be patented) just needs your writing finger to be inserted, and alas, you can write and draw with ease. For smaller and/or precise print, you can use your thumb and/or other fingers to guide with.

_________________________________________________

Writing That Fits Your Vibe.

Write Touch is available in 10 different colors, 5 choices of size, and 3 choices of comfort levels.The final material used will be a hybrid similar to soft silicone and hard plastic (Note that the prototype is made of hard plastic):

Carbon, Snow, Rose, Bourbon, French Fry, Pistachio, Caribbean, Royal, Spectrum, and Kickstarter Edition!

Should We Stop The Use of Pencils Altogether?

Not trying to ban pens/pencils here (Write touch will have a pencil feature), but we all have the pain when we sit in class writing pages worth of essays, worksheets on worksheets, constant bubbling in scantrons, so, with a device like Write Touch, you can say goodbye to giving your hand a 5-minute break.

With so many daily motor activities, we gotta ease our hands from possible cramping. There are ways to ease your hands and joints from using a regular pen, but you would have to constantly follow those positions and steps. Below are a few sources regarding the discomfort of prolonged writing.

Where Is Write Touch Useful?

-

The aesthetics and overall design of the Write Touch was just beyond the consideration I had to ensure this will look beautiful sitting at an office setting or classroom desk. 

Write touch is limitless to where you can write or draw: At home free-styling a poem, during a class essay, writing down notes at a meeting, or drawing a landscape at a park. That being said, Write touch will also have a key chain feature, so you can add this to your EDC with ease.

I also want to see this product be one day produced for facilities, offices, banks, centers, DMV etc. where workers would have you sign papers. Instead of a rubber band or chain holding a pen to a clipboard or kiosk, will have the Write Touch in place instead.

_________________________________________________

I Own a Pen and It's Also Cheaper. Do I Really Need the Write Touch?

You need the Write Touch to get the "right touch"! Just kidding, but writing utensils were obviously the inspiration behind this, and I thought with just one buy of this device (Write Touch will have 3 choices of size) and endless possibilities of cartridge types, this tool is one to last. (Write Touch will sell bundles of cartridge and tip types: Ballpoint, Graphite, Marker, Brush, and Calligraphy).

Some Final Thoughts.

While the many beliefs I have regarding the benefits of the Write Touch, I don't claim to cure any present condition you may have. Write Touch is simply a unique way to your daily scribble. From research regarding discomfort in the hands, and from personal experience, was inspired by the creation of this product. Many others and I who have tested my prototype found it was far more easy and comfortable writing with this utensil.

Risks and challenges

Although I don't have much experience in Kickstarter, but familiar with creating products of my own, all this will be a great learning experience. Being fully concerned of the attention of design, prototyping and production planning, there will always be that one to address the fine details of these.

In the event that things don't go as planned, whether it's a delay in the manufacturing, shipping date, etc., I promise to communicate honestly with you to correct the issue.
