Have a black square and some sort of pen, then when you type stuff on your compu like sending e-mails the person recieving it gets it in your own handwriting.

The interface you describe has existed for a couple of years (I own one.) I don't think there's an e-mail application yet that specifically caters to it; cute idea, though. [jutta, Nov 29 2000]
