letter writing robot
they have some styles of penmanship that you may choose. or you may send your own handwriting and they will make it into a font.
you may then type in messages to people and the robot will write your message using a real pen and they will mail the letter/note for you.
and the price is very reasonable - $2.99US.
of course, any handwriting turned into a font still lacks the variety in characters that makes real handwriting look real. it would be fun to know if they make a go of it. i'm thinking i should start a service where people call me and dictate over the phone and i do an actual letter and drop it in the mail.
it does bother me that they have this nice bit of handwriting in a very prominent place - implying that they will send a letter that looks like this. this is very pretty....but it is not done by a robot.
should i contact the company and suggest to them that they are misleading their customers?
this is what the robot writing looks like:
the new envelope for today is in a post below.
