Papershow is the latest product to make use of Anoto digital pen technology, and couples a Bluetooth USB dongle with a digital pen and paper set to let you beam your scribbles directly from paper to whiteboard or computer. Just slot the dongle into your laptop, pick up the pen and your writing will automatically be transferred to the computer in digital form for further processing or enjoyment.
It’s clever all right, but whichever way you look at it, you’re still tied to a special pad of paper which is more than constricting. Now the day they produce something which can use any type of paper is the day that this tech will really take off methinks. The product is very much in pre-launch right now, but will be priced at around £140.00 when it arrives later this year.
