Cyrano / Communicating Pens


The poet Cyrano wrote to his beloved Roxane wonderful love poems.Also in literature the couple is the most significant issues for those that come from a forced or undesired separation.
Considering the couple as a daily dialogue of words, gestures, details and events, Cyrano is intended to help the two partners by making them share their everyday life. Recording your handwriting the project shortens the distance between the partner by highlighting the unique and emotional character of your writing. As an optic mouse it can sense your movements on whatever you write, giving you the possibility to record and send your scripts everywhere you are.
