LiveScribe – interactive smartpen
November 14th, 2007

Bernie Dodge of Web Quest fame just twittered this. This is an interesting concept. Livescribe has developed a paper-based computing platform that merges a smartpen, paper, software applications, and development tools. According to their web site this interesting tool will be available online beginning of 2008. “It will cost less than $200-00USD”. I have never paid that much for a pen. It would be terrible thing to lose it. Might be an idea to invent something to prevent one from ever losing the pen.

LiveScribe - Turn Your Paper On

There is additional dot paper that the company states will be available at prices comparable to standard paper products. I shall keep an eye on this. Is there anything similar to this already on the market?

    Don’t be too concerned about losing the pens – we have many clients using the pen and they don’t seem to lose them – they get treated like a mobile phone – so things with a value like that tend to be looked after a bit better than an ordinary biro.
