In this digital age, there is still a need to write things down – as I sit here I have a to list, notes from meetings and sketches around my laptop, but there is now a product that helps to integrate those notes with your computer, ipad and iphone. Livescribe as is a pen that has a lot of interest tricks up it’s sleeve.
It records audio while you’re writing that can be allocated to a particular page of notes – good for lecture’s – imagine reading back notes from a particular lecture and hearing the lecturer explaining the content.
Digitalise what you write
The pen creates pdf ‘pencasts’ – I like the idea of being able to draw on paper and have that drawing then imported into illustrator to work on as a vector.
Then there’s sharing, it’s possible to email notes, upload to google docs and post to Facebook.
