The DigiScribble is a new take on the old handwriting capture game. The USB device has two modes, pen and mouse, and the thing apparently also learns your handwriting as you go, which should make it a bit more useful than other products in the genre. You don’t need special paper either, which is a neat cost saving. The package includes handwriting recognition software, which will need to be very good to cope with normal human scribble, let alone doctors or pharmacists, eh? £59.99.
Handwritten notes, maps, sketches and signatures can all be captured remotely using a normal ink filled pen! Save them to your PC and then convert them to typed text and copy or import into MS Office applications like Word and Outlook. When connected digiscribble also has mouse functionality and you can use it with the ‘digital inking’ and ‘tablet PC’ features included with MS Vista
