OMG!

Margaret Atwood has formed a corporation, Unotchit (Younotouchit), to create a device called the LongPen. Using a web cam, the author can speak to the fan at the store, and using a tablet, sign a copy of the book. The robotic arm in the store then signs the book in the author's handwriting. Amazing. I can see this being a method used by disabled and housebound authors to do book tours as well as the busy author who doesn't want to spend so much time on the road.
