Mobile Digital Pen

Mobile Digital Scribe

This thing looks fantastic. Mobile Digital Scribe from IOGear is a digital pen that acts like a regular ink pen but stores up to 50 pages of notes and doodles that can be uploaded to your computer later. If you have the transmitter attached to a computer your input will appear on you screen real time.

I wonder how accurate this thing is. I suspect the results when you upload the day’s notes might be pretty hilarious. But still, the thought of leaving the 5 pound laptop at home on the next away mission without winding up with a pocket full of shit scribbled on scaps of paper makes me seriously want to buy one of these… I’m still trying to find out if this thing will work on a Mac.

    my boss uses one of these things. it’s very accurate, all activity is picked up perfectly. It isn’t pressure-sensitive though, so don’t expect to be able to really draw with it. It’s really meant for notes. It comes with software that attempts to convert to text, and that’s not so hot. But that’s not especially surprising, handwriting recognition being shitty is a well-understood fact of life.
