The Livescribe Pulse smartpen is one very clever, and very handy, little piece of tech. It’s a pen, that when you write on the special Livescribe paper and synch the pen with your computer, takes a picture of the page you’ve written. Plus, when activated, the pen will record the audio that occurred while you were writing.
Then, when reviewing your notes, tap on the page, and the audio plays back. Perfect for meetings, lectures and the like. Plus there’s thousands of apps you can load on the pen – including one that will turn your handwritten text into typed text.
