The research on handwriting and fine motor skills actually establishes that these are developed by all forms of handwriting, not merely by cursive.

I learned "penmanship" in Catholic schools. I consistently got Ds (also in "deportment"). I can sign my name in cursive (a scribble), but if I need to communicate with someone via pen/paper, I print so they will know what I'm saying. On the other hand, my keyboard skills are top drawer. I'm looking forward to some new advance that means I'll never have to sign my name. Thumbprint?

A keyboard option that types in cursive would be cool.

Wow. It's 80% yes with 256 votes. I honestly thought that it would be the opposite.

Autographs should be cursive and so should signatures.

Only an electronics geek would post otherwise....

No need for signatures. RFID should take care of it.
