With PhonePoint Pen, you can hold your mobile phone like a pen, write short messages or draw simple diagrams in the air and send them to an e-mail address.
Thursday, June 18, 2009: Engineering students at Duke University, Durham, US have created a new cell phone technology called PhonePoint Pen, that permits users to write short notes in the air with their phone and have that message automatically sent to an e-mail address. To create this first-generation application, the students took advantage of the accelerometers in emerging cell phones.
According to researchers, accelerometers are the devices in phones that not only keep track of the phone's movements, but make it possible for the display screens to rotate from landscape to portrait modes depending on how the phone is rotated. These devices are always 'on', so there is no additional burden on the phone to use this new application.
