Technology has just entered your pen.
The Livescribe Smartpen is a pen that contains a camera, microphone, and speaker, and was created to save the user hours of time transcribing notes. Learn 5 ways this pen will make notetaking easier for any user.
Each Smartpen is equipped with a camera behind the pen tip. It will continually take pictures as you write or draw in your notebook. The pen will also link any visuals with an audio recording.
2. Record lectures
There is a microphone within the Smartpen that will record audio. Simply hold the power button down for approximately five seconds or with your pen tip and press the record button in your notebook to begin your recording session. For larger lecture rooms, you can plug a 3-D dual microphones headset into your pen for a high quality recording.
3. Replay lectures
A notebook is provided with the Smartpen. On the bottom of the paper is a control bar, which contains a record, pause, and stop sign. There are also options for volume, speed, bookmarks, and jumping to certain lecture points, all done by pressing the tip of your Smartpen to the corresponding sign. You can also tap your written notes to automatically begin replaying the audio from that point in your recorded session.
4. Search for key words
All your Smartpen notes and audio can be transferred to Livescribe on your desktop in a digital format called a pencast. Livescribe allows you to further organize, view notes, and hear the synchronized lectures taken from your Smartpen. You can also look up key words or phrases that are in your notes and it will show a thumbnail of each notebook page that contains your search with the word or phrase highlighted.
Sharing your interactive notes has become quick and simple through Livescribe. It will allow you to display your synchronized notes in its connectors: email, Facebook, Google Docs, Evernote, or a mobile device. Simply drag and drop the thumbnail of your note page to the connector icon of your choice.
