The LongPen is a remote signing device conceived of by writer Margaret Atwood in 2004 and debuted in 2006. It allows a person to remotely write in ink anywhere in the world via tablet PC and the internet.  It also allows for an audio and video conversation between the endpoints, such as a fan and author, while a book is being signed.
The Government of Ontario has adopted a long-distance signing station with assistance from Atwood.
