In a time where technology is becoming more and more prevalent in our lives, the intimacy of the handwritten message is fading away. Exchange combines these two different elements into a new form of meaningful communication. Users may share or store handwritten messages such as letters, drawings, or notes, to be stored digitally for later, shared in real time, or even broadcast online. By attaching Exchange to a notebook or paper, the corresponding stylus can scan notes or drawings as they are written where they are documented into digital “journals”. This allows artist to share their work in a new way, teachers to communicate with a student’s notes, friends to draw together while distances apart, and much more.

The product itself drew inspiration from certain physical features such as the tactile feeling and response of physical buttons and a flexible screen to feel similar to a carefully placed bookmark. With this combination of technology and the handwritten word, users will have a novel experience that can build not only content but relationships.
