Using the new Mobile Digital Scribe from IOGEAR (Irvine, CA), avid note takers can now leave their laptops at home and store handwritten notes and drawings to later upload onto a PC in digital text.
An ultrasonic transmitter and infrared sensor capture hand movements while a receiver attached to a notepad stores up to 50 pages of memos and images. The product’s pen, which is a regular size and weight, works on any paper and uses standard ink refills.
By connecting the receiver to a PC with the included USB cable, the handwriting recognition software translates notes into text and saves sketches as JPEGs for consumers to conveniently save, edit, and organize documents.
The Mobile Digital Scribe has additional functionality when connected to the computer and can serve as a mouse or writing device and
select and click on items on the screen.
The Mobile Digital Scribe is compatible with 12 languages and Microsoft Windows operating systems Microsoft Vista and Office 2000 and above. It is priced at $129.95 (MSRP) and comes with IOGEAR’s limited one-year warranty.
