Livescribe Pulse Smartpen

This groundbreaking computer-within-a-pen captures handwriting while simultaneously recording audio and synchronizing it to your notes, creating a truly innovative link between pen-and-paper and the digital domain for those who still depend on written notes. An infrared camera at the tip of the pen captures 72 pictures per second to digitally track numbers, words and drawings. Simply tap the pen on your notes using the Livescribe Dot Paper Notebook, which contains millions of microdots (one notebook included), to replay what was recorded from the exact moment you’re writing, so you never miss a word. Then transfer your work by putting the pen in its USB cradle and attaching it to your PC. You can store up to 250 megabytes of work (several thousand pages) at www.livescribe.com, and even weigh in on the scribblings of others if the mood strikes you. Write-o! $149–199 (1 or 2GB).
