The concept of digital stationery is derived from the classic stationery kit, which provided consumers everything needed – pen, paper, ink, etc. – to write by hand, collaborate and freely express themselves. Digital stationery is the modern equivalent, essentially extending the classic stationery set palette to include an endless supply of interoperable, digital ink-powered offerings – digital pens, augmented paper, and digital stationery applications. Emerging digital stationery offering will enable an unlimited canvas for human creativity – new experiences driven by advanced user interfaces, 3D, as well as animated and augmented worlds.
