Livescribe: Paper based computing platform

LiceScribe developed technology that redefines the way we use paper and pen. LiveScribe’s pen will let you take hand written notes from a lecture, the pen remembers the lecture you are hearing. If you miss any notes during the lecture, just tap the pen on the paper, and it will play back the lecture for you.

The beauty if the product is that it will play back from the point where you started to take the notes. This is accomplished by an in built camera on the pen which recognizes dots on the paper from your notes. You need a special type of paper to use this technology.

The notes can be uploaded to the computer, emailed to a friend or can be posted to a blog. To know more about the technology go to LiveScribe, [Via]

One of the key applications at launch for the Livescribe platform is called “Paper Replay,� which allows total recall from lectures, meetings or conversations by simply tapping on your notes. When used to take notes during a discussion or lecture, the smartpen records the conversation and digitizes the handwriting, automatically synchronizing the ink and audio. By later tapping the ink, the user can replay the conversation from the exact moment the note was written. Notes and audio can also be uploaded to a PC where they can be replayed, saved, searched or sent.
