Harry Potter Magical Gadget – 9
Quick Quotes Quill
The world of magic and wizardry hasn’t embraced the digital age at all and insists on using quills to write things by hand. Let’s not get into the debate about whether handwriting should be taught in schools or if cursive writing is obsolete. The larger point is that in the Potter universe, these handwriting tools have many of the benefits that technology gives us.
For example, there’s the Quick Quotes Quill, a magical pen that captures whatever someone is dictating and writes it down. It’s basically voice-to-text technology, and as we’ve already seen, you can even write a full article with dictation now.
Similarly, there’s a Spell-Checking Quill. Spellcheck in Office is nothing new, and it’s even on our phones now in the form of autocorrect.
