Scientists have developed a program that can mimic your personal handwriting. It does this by analyzing a small sample of a person’s handwriting to find unique shapes, traits and the pressure of each pen stroke.

While this program seems ripe for fraud, the creators say it could be used to help stop it too. For example, the creators believe it would have picked up that the famous “Hitler Diaries” were fraudulent by comparing it with known samples of Hitler’s handwriting.
