Robotic Hand Helps Lazy Authors

Margaret Atwood of Canadian Sci-Fi author fame has created a little gadget to help her laziness and potentially piss off her fans and fellow authors. She has invented a robotic hand called the LongPen, it will help her do book signing tours by allowing everything to be done remotely. The LongPen will include a video screen so she can still communicate with her fans and she will also still do actual signing remotely and the robotic hand will emulate the strokes. Only a select few have seen the actual invention—pictured is just a robot hand stock photo—and she will do the first unveiling at the London Book Fair.
