The pens are a step in the right direction, but 5 of them might be confusing for a user… “Is this my monitor or my keyboard?” (That said, the LeapFrog FLY pen is pretty cool as a kid’s toy, even though I think you have to keep a pad of their proprietary paper around)

I’ve thought about using a phone for a mouse before, too, but gave up with the realisation that as soon as you have to talk and work on something at the same time, the duality is worthless.
