Livescribe Pulse ‘smartpen’

By Matt Mayer on Oct 20 2009 • Filed under Tech Talk

The Livescribe Pulse smartpen is an all-in-one note recording device. Not only does it function as a regular pen, but by using special "Dot Paper," the Pulse smartpen can record anything you write down (notes, diagrams etc.) and save it to the tiny computer inside.

This is all thanks to a built-in infrared camera that allows the pen to 'recognize' what is being written, drawn or doodled. In addition, this pen contains a built-in microphone that can not only capture anything you hear, but can sync it with your written notes as well. The built-in speaker allows you to play back this audio at any time.

You can even use the pen to tap a written note and have it play back the corresponding audio clip. The most important feature, of course, is that all of this information can be later downloaded to a PC or Mac, allowing you to backup, replay and search your notes right from your own computer. You can even share your note and recordings using the included software.

Livescribe has recently released an upgrade to this smartpen, bringing the maximum capacity up to 4GB (along with a new titanium colour). For any professionals who take a lot of notes during meetings or interviews, this pen adds a level of convenience to helping you to stay organized.
