The pen that spots mistakes as you write


A dad has invented a pen for his son which vibrates when the person using it makes a mistake.

The Lernstift or "learning pen", doesn't need ink or special paper to work and uses a special mechanism to work out what is being written.

It's connected to a mobile phone app that flashes to let the user know they've gone wrong.

Falk Wolsky was inspired by his son Leon when he was first learning to write.
