This electronic writing help may change the world and this is done through an innovation made in Germany. One in seven adults even in Germany between 18 and 64 years can not read and write properly. This shows the incredible potential. UNESCO report shows that about 774 million people are illiterate worldwide. In many countries of the world it is still a privilege to read and write.

In the electronic pen a software is installed, which can recognize handwriting in real time. If a wrong word is written, the pen starts to vibrate and it does not matter whether you use a document or a tablet. Co-inventor Daniel Kaesmacher: "It is the first digital pen that recognizes handwriting with motion sensors and makes the writing digitally usable." The idea for the VibeWrite came to the inventors looking at the children's homework. Soon the idea was implemented.

The VibeWrite learning pen is inspired by life, created from everyday moments. It is sufficient if the user paints in the air - the technique makes it possible to use the VibeWrite in conjunction with a smartphone or computer. The digital device checks the writing and emits a subtle vibration when it thinks you've made an error. VibeWrite, works in English and German, is a learning aid for kids, a gadget for anyone, with unique motion sensor technology, wirelessly connected to combine classic and digital use - and even with open API for app developers!

Direkte Ansprechpartner
Die Kooperation zwischen Karlsruhe und dem indischen Pune ist einen Schritt weiter: Im Januar 2014 wurde im MCCIA Trade Tower, 403, Senapati Bapat Road, eine direkte Karlsruher Anlaufstelle in Pune eröffnet. Erste Ansprechpartner dort sind die Repräsentantinnen Iris Becker und Winnie Kulkarni von Let's Bridge IT, die rund um den Standort Karlsruhe informieren, aktiv Kontakte zu indischen Firmen halten - und dazu auch deutsche Firmen aus der TRK in und um Pune bekannter machen.

"Wir freuen uns, dass wir hier einen festen Standort haben. Das bringt unsere Kooperationen einen Schritt weiter", so der Tenor.
Auch von indischer Seite wurde dieses Engagement vor Ort schon mehrfach besonders gewürdigt: Eine gute Basis für weitere enge Kooperationen.
