Berlin residents now sign their identity cards using Wacom signature tablets
At all Citizen Offices in the city, Berlin's identity card authorities are now employing the Wacom LCD signature tablet, STU-500 for processing applications for the new identity card. All Berlin residents who apply for a new identity card as of 1st November 2010 will give all the required signatures via a Wacom signature tablet. This also includes the signature that subsequently appears on the actual identity card itself. Altogether, more than 650 STU-500 LCD signature tablets are in operation at Citizen Offices throughout Berlin.
