Livescribe 2 GB Echo Smartpen
The impressive part is that when you review your notes by touching the pen to any word, symbol or marking made on the page, the SmartPen will play the audio that was recorded at the exact moment that text was written. So if a lecturer says something important, all you need to do is write a note or even just make a squiggle on the page, and the SmartPen will bookmark and play back what was said the exact moment you made the mark. And you don’t have to worry about a meeting dragging on for hours as 4GB equals around 400 hours of recording time.
For those who need to solve the odd maths problem, the SmartPen also acts as a calculator. Just write out the maths problem on the page and the pen will tell you the answer. Simple.
The Livescribe really comes into its own when you plug it into a USB port on a Mac or PC. All your pages are instantly uploaded where they can be viewed as visual interactive documents in which your hand-written text can be searched for keywords, your notes shared with others online and where they can be even made into PDF’s or Flash movies. A really cool use for the pen is the ability to draw a sketch of something and make verbal notes or instructions while you do it. When uploaded to a PC, the sketch will be drawn live on screen with your voice (or audio notes) overlaying the picture as it is redrawn in real time. OCR software from Vision Objects allows you to take the handwritten notes and convert directly to text without all the time wasted in between recapturing electronically what you have already written.
