Warm Writing is a pen that guides people to evoke the rich and tender emotions of the past handwriting era through the interactive process of touching the words with the hand.

Warm Writing uses temperature-sensitive ink. When the words have just been written, it will gradually disappear with the passing of temperature. When people touch the handwriting with their hand, the written words will be awakened by the warmth of the hand and then appear. When the temperature drops, the words will temporarily conceal themselves and wait for the next encounter with the warmth of the hand.
