Hate it when you’ve taken notes during a meeting, but then you can’t read your own handwriting? Or you forget what a phrase or sentence is supposed to refer to? Well, with the Smartpen from Livescribe, you’ll never miss a word again!
The Smartpen works just like an ordinary pen, except that this pen also comes with audio recording capabilities. So, while you’re taking notes, you can record everything that’s being said at the meeting. The pen also comes with a USB connector, so transfer both the audio and the written word to your computer and be able to share that information with a colleague or keep a digital version of the information. The pen also works on a special paper that comes with commands to turn the pen on and off, and to start and stop recording. Folks can also backtrack with the pen by tapping the ink on the paper, where the pen will start playing the audio from that particular point.
These smartpens start at $99, and Jody Farrar with Livescribe demonstrates the pen in this video below:
