IOGEAR's digital pen ships

IOGEAR today unveiled its Mobile Digital Scribe, a functional pen with a digital receiver that stores up to 50 pages of notes and images which users can upload to a computer. The pen works on any paper and uses standard ink refills, while an ultrasonic transmitter and infrared sensor capture hand movements and a receiver attached to a notepad stores up to 50 pages of data. The Mobile Digital Scribe is compatible with 12 languages and works with Windows Vista as well as Microsoft Office 2000 and newer. The pen is priced at $130.

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 users to save, edit, and organize documents. Users can also tag information in sticky notes to the desktop or set pop-up reminders for certain dates or times. The Mobile Digital Scribe also serves as a mouse or writing device when connected to a PC, allowing users to select as well as click on items.
