Hate your handwriting, or simply suffering from a bad case of writer's cramp? If a typed letter won't cut it, consider trying the AxiDraw on for size. According to Gizmodo, the "personal writing and drawing machine” is a computer-powered pen plotter that draws or writes anything you want. Simply select a flat surface, choose a writing instrument, and let the AxiDraw scribble away to your heart's desire.

You can use the AxiDraw to address invitations, make posters, replicate graphics, and "hand-write" missives. The best part? Other than fitting the machine with a pen or marker and plugging it into your computer via a USB cable, you won't have to lift a finger.

The AxiDraw retails for $450, and is made by Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories, a small business in California that produces “DIY and open source hardware for art, education, and world domination.” Find out more about the AxiDraw on its website, or watch the above video to see it in action.
