Livescribe Echo Smartpen 4GB
The Echo is a digital pen that comes equipped with a microphone which can record audio while you write. So if you're in a fast-paced environment where you need to take notes on the go, you have the ability to write and record audio at the same time, allowing you to double-check your notes against what was heard earlier.
Starting a new record session is as simple as tapping the tip of the pen to the special tablet that is required to use the Echo, which utilizes the company's MyScript optical recognition software. When you're done, all your written and recorded information is stored in a Flash file that can be uploaded to any PC and transferred to a PDF.
The Echo offers high security as well, enabled with password protection to keep your files and software safe from any prying eyes or fingers. Keep the pen tethered to your computer and watch your writing translated digitally before your very eyes. Another interesting feature on the Echo; you can use it as a mouse on any desktop or laptop. The Echo is available in three memory sizes: 2, 4 and 8GB.
