Presentation Abstract

Innovation and creativity are understood as essential  components of business success and economic growth, but only a small minority of people feel that their current creative tools allow them to live up to their potential. Recent studies have shown that modern technologies may be interfering with our ability to tap into our inherent creativity, whereas using simpler methods such as a pen comes with significant neurological benefits. This talk is about the benefits of using a pen for both brainstorming and collaboration.  I will show you how a new and unique technology that Quirklogic is developing to bring analog writing advantages to a digital world.
