Sign your web forms with your signatures

It is rare that one sees some innovative jQuery plugins. Signature Pad is one of them. It is a jQuery plugin that lets you create your personal signatures using your mouse or a touch device. The signature is drawn on a canvas element and serialized as a JSON array, which can then be stored and used to reproduce the signature again.

Although it is a excellent concept and showcases the use of the HTML canvas element in a new light, I’m a little skeptical of its practical applicability. Shoehorning paper concepts into the digital domain seldom works. In my opinion it will work best for pen based devices. Still, it will act as a seed for generating new ideas.
