Working from our computers takes more than our eyes. Sitting for long periods of time at a time, typing, dragging and clicking on the mouse pad often results in cramps in the fingers and hands. Products like smartpens and assistive keyboards are specially designed to relieve us of some of the stress, which leads to lean and more productive workdays. Korean designer Jo Yoon unveiled his idea for a smartpen product called Bespoke, conceptualized using Samsung’s Bespoke appliance design language.
Draped in a velvety aluminum finish, the bespoke smartpens come in a few different color palettes, ranging from blush yellows to matte blacks. Associated with a smart notepad, users can write with the bespoke smartpens on the attached notepad which translates the text written on the computer screen.
Instead of typing from the same hand position throughout the workday, bespoke smartpens break the monotony of computer work by providing a more tactile and ergonomic input tool. Along the body of each pen, an action button functions as a selector and on / off control.
Pushing Bespoke’s ergonomic usability even further, each smartpen gradually tapers down to fit each user’s grip more comfortably. Yoon has also fitted each smartpen with silicone grips to ensure convenient use throughout the working day without any slippage resulting from sweat on the palms.
In addition to the smartpen and notepad, Joon conceptualized a bespoke charger that looks like an inkwell for overtime. Each charging base comes with its own wire to plug into your computer or laptop, ensuring that no power is lost during use, however, the actual charging receiver is wireless.
