Are There Times,

you have to sign so many documents,

 it makes your hand ache? if the answer is yes, this nifty little gadget could be just what you are looking for, Swiss watchmaker Jaquet Droz finally unveiled its impressive Signing Machine last month, at the Baselworld Watch Show, after reportedly working on it for the last four years, it showcases the company’s mechanical clockwork technology, only instead of doing it by accurately telling time, it replicates your signature to perfection, 

 created by Jaquet Droz it features a retractable metal arm that comes with a slot for a pen, You just place it in there, wind the machine up, and the 585 different parts inside will guide the pen to create your signature on pretty much anything you need, the Signing Machine was apparently inspired by The Writer and The Draughtsman, two pen-holding automatons built by Pierre Jaquet Droz and his son, Henri-Louis, in the late 1700s, to promote their watches, the Writer, could also guide a pen on paper, but the company claims that the mechanism for the newer Signing Machine has been “reworked for fluidity, carrying out perfect, more consistent signatures” than the old automaton could,

but what happens if you somehow misplace this small Signing Machine, or if it gets stolen? Someone could theoretically use it to sign your life away, don’t worry, though, as Jaquet Droz claims that the machine can only be activated by a code chosen by the owner, there are just two minor problems for potential owners, firstly, you have to send in your signature for the machine to be built to sign the same as you, secondly have a cheque ready for $367,500 I think I will keep to signing my own cheques!
