Atwood uses robotic arm to remotely sign things

Sci-Fi Novelist Margaret Atwood has invented a machine that enables her to avoid book tours — she can stay at home and sign books anywhere. The device, called LongPen, features a video screen for talking to fans, and a ROBOT ARM that signs exactly what she signs. The device will be unveiled and demonstrated for the first time in a “fortnight” (which is two weeks for those of you born in the U.S. after the Revolutionary War) and may represent the world’s first transatlantic signature.
