I would like...

A way to easily mark the current date and time on paper

So that...

I can keep track of my thoughts as I write them down


The idea here is to make a stamp that gives the current date and time when you stamp it down — a timestamp in the very literal sense of the word. I'm planning on giving the current date and time by means of an RTC, with a seven-segment display where the segments rise to receive ink. The seven-segment display mechanism will be based on Vijay Varada's refreshable braille module.
