There was a nifty product introduced in this week’s Macworld at Frisco: the Pen-it® NOTES. It is a digital pen that converts hand-written analogue information created using “pen and paper” into digital data, enabling the data to be utilised in various applications. When you used the pen on a special patterned and dotted notebook, the pen transfers the information via Bluetooth to the Mac in vector data form for further editing. I am looking forward to a world where lab protocols and records are instantly made digitally with an application like Pen-it. For that a bigger protocol format (A-4 not A-5) is needed.
