    Phree allows the user to draw on almost any kind of surface, such as a door, a table, a window or the back of your hand, according to the Kickstarter site (

    The device is easy to use when a keypad is sometimes inconvenient or a stylus pen doesn’t work well on a small screen. Phree connects to phones, tablet, laptops and Smart TVs, and is compatible with software and apps such as Office, OneNote, EverNote, Acrobat, Google Handwriting Keyboard, Viber and others.

    The developers hope to ship Phree to users by March 2016.
