Surface Pen can only be used as a handwritten pen, but if new patents are put into production, the status quo may soon change. Under a new patent, Microsoft may be developing a new version of Surface Pen that can be used as a Bluetooth headset.
Microsoft plans to make the Surface Pen more flexible and curved so that the pen can be worn on the ear, just like a wireless Bluetooth headset.
Recently, foreign media discovered a patent called "Flexible carpenter's stylus with dockable earpiece" (a flexible handwriting pen with fixed headphones). It explains a new technology that allows batteries in a handwriting pen to power headphones. Because the pen is flexible, the other side of the pen can be used as a headset.
Microsoft says handwriting pens can still be used to work on computing devices. It has a curved flexible part and a base for fixing wireless headphones. The flexible part is bendable and can be turned into a headset, allowing the user to wrap it around the ear and listen to music.
The headphone base is equipped with speakers, a sound system, and it also uses the battery of the handwriting pen to power itself. Therefore, the device can be used as a full-function handwriting pen and a modular Bluetooth headset at the same time.
While we would like to see this happen, the idea is still a patent and cannot be identified as Microsoft's future plan. Like many other patents filed in the past, the device may never really be released.
In the news, Microsoft also filed a patent to add a display or status bar to Surface Pen.
The display bar on the Surface stylus helps the user identify the input shape, size, style, or battery status.
Like modular handwriting patents, there is no guarantee that Microsoft will actually launch an Surface stylus with a display screen.
