Except for the "i" part, you don't need to imagine.
Pen/stylus devices that capture position and movement
data when the user writes on paper (or pretends to)

Apple has never been above appropriating pre-existing
technology, slapping an "i" in front, and trumpeting
it as their revolutionary advance in... whatever.
