Microsoft's new Surface Slim Pen 2 goes to extreme lengths to make you believe you're writing on paper.
Pen and paper are our most fundamental way of writing and drawing, and the one that is probably the most comfortable. And yet, outside of graphic design and other specialist uses, we rarely use it to interact with our desktop computers.
The new Surface Pen might not change that, but it does bring one crazy innovation to the pen-on-glass game: haptic feedback that vibrates the pen to mimic the feel of writing and drawing on paper. And, unlike the Apple Pencil, the Surface Pen works on a laptop, kinda.
