Paper and Pencil: The perfect app

Out of all the gadgets and apps in my toolbox the paper and pencil seem to be at the foundation of all my work. The invention of paper possibly dates back to 105 A.D. and the first graphite writing utensil was thought to be born in the 16th century. While examining the other tools I use on a daily basis I thought to myself, what will a design application look like in a thousand years? How do they reach that level of perfection, and is it even possible in the digital environment? Just something to think about.
