Seeking to cater to fans of ink and paper, Livescribe has created the Sky smartpen, a writing tool with a tiny computer inside that records notes written on special microdot paper.
The notes are then sent wirelessly to a personal account in the cloud through a partnership with Evernote, the digital archive service.
The pen has up to 8 gigabytes of memory, which translates into thousands of pages of words, pictures and diagrams. It also records audio during the note-taking session. Users can play back precise moments of the audio by touching the pen to the corresponding spot in the handwritten notes.
Sky includes 500 megabytes of free storage through Evernote. Once in the cloud, the notes and audio are accessible on any computer, or any iOS or Android mobile device.
The Sky pen comes with a replacement ink cartridge, two easy-to-lose caps, a notebook of microdot paper and a micro-USB cable for charging. The pen and accessories, including extra notebooks, are available online at Amazon.com and Livescribe's website, as well as at retailers like Staples and Best Buy.
