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

I don't want a chip (thank you), but some other form of digital recognition would be fabulous. Can I get a Chop?

I don't even bother to read anything in cursive.. It might as well be written in spanish..

A keyboard option that types in cursive would be cool.

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?

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