About Judy

As WP's senior editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

Nintendo Licenses Writing Recognition Technology

Canadian software maker Zi Corp. said today that it has signed a licensing deal for its Decuma handwriting recognition technology with Japan's Nintendo. Nintendo developers can use Zi's technology while creating software for the Nintendo DS.

Nintendo DS is the first handheld gaming platform to offer dual screens and touch-screen technology, similar to touch technologies found in some PDA's or smartphones. Users can interact with the Nintendo DS by using standard control buttons, a microphone or the gaming system's innovative touch screen.

"As the leading provider of handheld video game systems in the world, Nintendo has a reputation for adopting innovative technologies that improve the user's experience with its products," said Milos Djokovic, chief technical officer and chief operating officer, Zi Corporation. "With Decuma, Nintendo DS users will experience natural handwriting recognition previously only available to PDA and smartphone users. Zi continues to bring its multi-modal input products to leading mobile phones, gaming platforms and smartphones across the globe."
