livescribe smartpenThe Livescribe 2GB Pulse Smartpen is a digital pen that takes recordings and can be used to make notes on special dot paper, Both the notes and recordings can be downloaded onto a computer (Mac or Windows) and by making bookmarks the recordings can be synchronised with the text. However as the Guardian review said it "Doesn't turn scribble into text; paper can be costly"

The pen is easy to use and the commands for recording, play and pause are accessed from the pad. The dot paper feels like ordinary note paper when writing. During trials the system worked best in small tutorials and meetings rather than large lecture rooms where speakers may be too far away and the environment is noisy.
