Livescribe 3 Pen

My new favorite toy is the Livescribe 3 Pen for the iPad. Many of you may be familiar with the Livescribe pen, but let’s face it, it was a hassle dealing with the USB cable to upload your pen cast. The Livescribe 3 connect via Bluetooth to your ipad and your writing are uploaded with no hassle.

The device feels like a real pen in your hand, although a little on the thick side. The pen and notepad allows you to keep traditional style hardcopy notes and simultaneously creates an electronic copy. It uses your ipad’s microphone to record voice and automatically sync’s with your writing. The ipad app allows you to send electronic copies via email. The pen itself uses real ink and on the opposite end is a nice stylus tip for your ipad.

Another bonus is the online content can be converted to text with the swipe of a finger. Of course that requires legible handwriting to work properly.

One of the major drawbacks of the pen is the need to use special paper, proprietary dotted paper. They do say that you can print copies of the special paper if you own a 600dpi (or higher) inkjet printer.

You can learn more about the pen at the Livescribe website located at http://www.livescribe.com/en-us/smartpen/ls3/.
