I am writing a DN fic (not sure if that'd be appropriate, but I can give you a name of link if you would like, and don't care about this particular spoiler) where as one of (probably) minor plot points, Light gets an idea to try more layered medium of writing names than a pen. Such as, a listening device, which transfers data over a network to a computer that uses some sort of typing device to enter data into the Death Note. Would this work identically to a pen, according to canon? Thanks.
A computer can’t kill with the Death Note because it requires the writer to think about the victims face when writing their name.
“The human whose name is written in this note shall die.
This note will not take effect unless the writer has the person's face in their mind when writing his/her name.”
