Pen 2.0? January 8, 2008

Yes. There have been many digital and computerized pens in recent times, but the LiveScribe is the best pen ever.
Words alone will not do it justice. You must see it to believe it. Here is a short video showing just some of what it can do:

Here are three more videos from their website that go into further details about this amazing new pen.

Very cool and for under 200 bucks looks reasonable. But, I wonder what he learning curve is for the pen. I write so little. My hand writing sucks. I guess it will help with my penmanship.

Hm, looked into this pen a bit. At first I was completely dumfounded – I saw the animated demo, and couldn’t imagine how it might be working. Then, I was pleasantly surprised when I saw that it had an infrared camera built in, but still couldn’t justify how it worked.

Finally I hit the page on the website about the paper. The paper is formatted with tiny dots, each of them unique, that create a time signature for the pen. At the bottom of each page in the proprietary notebook are playback controls.

That’s where I signed off. As much as I think that it’s a great idea, I realize that I could never use it. I’m not the type of person that can keep track of ordering new notepads, let alone keeping the batteries either A) charged or B) freshly replaced.

Once again my procrastinistic personality makes cool new technology unattainable… 😦

Thanks for pointing it out though.

I’ve been watching for this pen since they announced some time ago (with only the rather lame animation on their website). I am rather disappointed that they have no Mac support. Don’t they realize Mac users trend to be early adopters? At any rate, it is interesting technology at work and I look forward to the release of their SDK kit at the end of 2008. Perhaps a Mac developer will pick it up.

As an aside, I wonder if the pen is too bulky, though. I’ll need to hold one to be sure.
