(I tried to find the previous post about designing and sketching
software programs, in order to reply there, but alas I could not find
A friend of mine recently bought something at I thought might be of
interest to some on the forum group.
It was a “Livescribe smart pen” and a “Livescribe by Moleskin dot
paper journal (unlined)”.
(we are not affiliated in any way.)
(please forgive my very limited technical knowledge about this!)
She told me that the pen has ink, and writes on the special journal
dot paper like a normal pen.
The pen also has a camera in the tip, that “sees” the special “dot
paper” (for orientation, I believe).
The special dot paper is like regular paper, in that the smart pen
writes on it.
It comes lined, unlined, grid.
Now, here is the cool part!
So! You write notes/ and draw or sketch, etcetera, and then you can
wirelessly send it as a. pdf to your computer/ iphone/ ipad,
Also, the written script can be converted to “type”.
It sounds similar to old school sketching with pen and paper, and
then scanning into the computer, but better?
Anyway, that is the extent of my technical knowledge, but I thought
I would mention it as something interesting to to look into.
