gyropen writes digitally on paper by hand.

The digital future of writing

Imagine writing on a piece of paper in the future. As you write, the gyropen will recognise your personal handwriting and send it to your smartphone as digital text. 

Your text will be analysed, organised and saved using artificial intelligence and suitable information from the internet will be attached, appointments organised or shared with others.

Note: The hardware of the gyropen, such as the pen housing and electronics, is currently in the final development phase. The software and cloudware are still being developed and will be supported by a special funding project.

Writing …

… is human history. Culture, education, knowledge, religion, art, intelligence and technology would not have emerged without writing.

Your handwriting becomes an expression of your digital personality.



The sensors

Technically high-precision sensors for acceleration, rotation rates, power transmission and pressure sensitivity record the pressure and movement of the handwriting on the pen tip and recognize what you are writing or just gesturing.

The hardware

Voltage and charge regulators as well as a long-lasting battery ensure that your gyropen is always optimally supplied with energy. The gyropen is charged via a USB-3 charging socket, into which any standardized USB-3 charging cable can be plugged. Protective diodes protect the gyropen against overvoltage.

The three-color LED shows you whether your gyropen is switched on, charging, the battery is charged or the integrated Bluetooth 5.2 module is establishing the connection to your smartphone.

You can switch the pen on/off and simultaneously extend the writing tip by pressing the button on the head of the gyropen.

A built-in flash memory ensures that the captured handwriting data is secured even in the event of a Bluetooth interruption. If the connection is restored, the data is automatically transferred to the gyropen app.

The writing mine

The focus is on the longest possible service life of a high-quality writing instrument, which protects the environment and resources. The gyropen refill is manufactured by the world’s leading refill specialist, SCHNEIDER Schreibgeräte GmbH. The stainless-steel tip is extremely wear-resistant and ensures a streak-free, flawless typeface, the patented gel ink for a gently gliding writing experience.

The ink dries quickly – even on smooth paper – and remains smudge-proof even when marking with highlighters afterwards.

Thanks to the plug & play system, the refills can be exchanged in just a few simple steps and the gyropen is ready to go again after just a few seconds. The Viscoglide® technology developed by SCHNEIDER combines the writing comfort of gel pens with the range and shelf life of a classic ballpoint pen.

Since our partner Schneider produces almost exclusively in Germany, the gyropen mines meet demanding ecological standards.

The shaft

The gyropen shaft is made exclusively from recycled plastics. That protects the environment and CO2 emissions. The entire production process is shaped by the idea of sustainability – exclusive production in Germany, use of ecologically sensible processes and materials, optimized logistics, regional purchasing in Europe and the use of 100% green electricity from hydropower, combined heat and power and photovoltaics.

The environmental management system for shaft and mine production is certified according to the world’s most stringent EMAS standard. All materials used as well as the functional concept of the pen case are of high quality in order to extend the service life of the gyropen so you get more out of your gyropen and energy expenditure and waste are avoided.

The ergonomically shaped shaft has a matt grip zone and enables a relaxed and secure writing position without hand fatigue.

The gyropen will initially be available in two color versions: SPACE-BLACK and SKY-WHITE.
