Despite being a writer for tech products, I still insist on taking a pen and a notebook with me wherever I go. Pens may seem obsolete in the digital age, but they are still the simplest and go-to note-taking tool for many. However, paper isn’t exactly good for the environment. Paper notes are also hard to share with others. Luidia has created the eBeam Smartpen that doesn’t just let you write on any surface; it makes handwritten notes more shareable than ever.
How eBeam Smartpen Works
The eBeam Smartpen system relies on two components: the pen, and the sensor. The sensor works with any surface. When you need to write down on some paper, you can grab anything from a tiny sticky note to letter-sized ones. And when you want to use your desk as your canvas, just slip the stylus nib on so you don’t end up with ink everywhere. To store and share your notes, you can use the companion eBeam Note app. The smartpen detects and connects with just a button, so you don’t need to pair it over Bluetooth.
Share Your Notes Real-Time with This Luidia Pen
The best thing about eBeam Smartpen is the live share function. Simply start a live session, and share the link. Anyone with the link will be able to see your notes in real time. If you are in a Skype meeting and you need to work on diagrams or illustrate something, this function will be your best friend. When you review your notes afterward, the handwriting recognition software will be able to turn your writing into text. Easily shareable text makes notes easy to read whether for personal use or for a study group. If you are already using other chatting or memo apps, you can still get the most out of the pen with the eBeam Keyboard app. You can then write, draw or take memo even without the dedicated app opened.
Pricing and Availability
The eBeam Smartpen has just gone live on Indiegogo. There is a month left for you to back the project and pick up your early-bird discounts. You can get a pen for USD77. There are also multipacks available, where the average cost for each pen will be even lower.
