A Hand-written Blog Entry

Yeah, I am writing this
post with a pen An livescribe
pen (www.livescribe.com). In fact,
I’m ever recording the sounds of this
Starbucks as I write (for no good
reason).

We bought two of these pens of
the request of an elementary teacher
She said that keeping a lot of notes
about the children results in lots of
piles of paper. She heard of smart
pens and wondered if they might
work to digitize the notes.

I was skeptical, but the reviews
on Amazon UK were not bad Also,
I have long wanted a tablet computer
that I could handwrite notes into,
but it has never come along. The
Full-the audio recording options on
this pen are also interesting.

The dotted paper allows the
internal camera of the pen to
work just like our ENO boards–
all the technology is in the pen
It would be bad if the Pen only
worked on expensive dotted paper,
but you can print out dotted
paper on a laser printer

Light is low in here, so I will be curious
to know how this
comes out when sync’ed to
the computer via the USB
cradle.

Meanwhile, it’s time to head

Afternote: I did have to clean up the text a fair amount after the OCR process, since my hand writing isn’t splendid at the moment. Here is what the pen looks like:
