I’m still a pen and paper kind of guy when it comes to jotting down notes and such so I like the simplicity of this digital pen alternative from EPOS. It doesn’t require a special writing surface or even custom paper in order to work. All you have to do is clip the included USB flash drive to the top of your notebook (the old-school type) or pad of paper and start writing.
When you’re done just connect the flash drive to your PC and all of your notes and sketches will be automatically accessible as digital versions. From that point you can create PDFs, JPGs or even automatically convert your hand-written words into editable text. And while the flash drive can be recharged when connected to a USB port the pen uses standard batteries that will have to be periodically replaced.
The best part in my opinion is that EPOS claims the pen and flash drive will be available for as low as $80 sometime this Spring.
