IOGEAR releases new ink-to-digital pen

updated 01:05 pm EDT, Mon August 20, 2007

IOGEAR Digital Scribe pen

The latest device from IOGEAR is the Digital Scribe, a pen which can draw in ink and on-screen at the same time. Words written in print or cursive can be converted to digital text in 10 different languages, and should a user start sketching shapes or more elaborate art, the data can be converted automatically into JPEG images.

The Scribe is loaded with standard ink refills, but can also be used solely as a two-button mouse, and is bundled with software that creates "sticky" notes that can be time-delayed. The pen is further touted as compatible with Windows Vista and OneNote 2003 SP1, allowing desktop systems to function like tablets. The Digital Scribe requires Windows 2000/XP or later and is now selling for $100.
