Interactive Pen: Digital Note Taker & Mouse
Ever wish your pen could remember what you have written, when you cannot? Now it can, through INOTE, a new system for education and business.
The first device ever made to capture natural handwriting from any paper, and store it in the receiver, INOTE requires no special paper, notepad or special ink. Through handwriting recognition software, the pen turns handwriting into digital text. Now it is no need to carry a laptop all the time. Just write on regular paper and upload the writing when convenient.
Able to recognize the user’s handwriting and store it in memory, INOTE helps everyone from designers, businessmen, managers, and scientists to students and teachers. INOTE operates in two modes – either connected by USB cable, or unconnected to a computer.
In mobile mode, INOTE lets the user take notes at a meeting and store them with no computer needed. Then the user simply uploads text, emails it, and files it once connected to a computer. In online mode, plugged into a USB port, INOTE works as a PC compatible pen.
INOTE stores handwritten input into a hard or flash drive in real time with accuracy of 0.2 mm and synchronizes with a PC or notebook to store, organize, edit, or share material. The users can annotate or write directly into Microsoft Office applications, using regular paper, and store over 100 A4 pages.
Other features include a rechargeable battery and LCD status indication, full mouse functionality when working online, a Notes Manager Application, and optional handwriting recognition. INOTE runs on Microsoft Windows 2000 (SP4), Microsoft Windows XP (SP2), and Microsoft Windows Vista.
