Hyderabad: The evolution of the pen has taken a giant leap into the future thanks to Logitech Inc. Imagine using a pen that remembers everything you write and can transfer all that information into your PC without re-typing a word.
Hence no more lost notes or time spent looking for important phone numbers or addresses. Logitech's new personal digital pen, IO, lets users edit, search, organise, export and email hand-written notes captured digitally.
The technology part of this is that a camera is attached underneath the ballpoint ink tip, which records what is being written. And all this information can be transferred to a PC via a device attached to the PC.
Once the information has been fed into the PC, one can search it, store it, email it, put it into a calendar or put it into Microsoft word. One can even put a drawing into a drawing programme and just about everything that can be written almost instantly.
Logitech says the camera records up to 40 pages of writing in its flash memory and one can even convert ones handwriting to electronic text with special handwriting recognition software.
