The Pulse Smartpen “transforms an ordinary ballpoint” into a multifunction digital notation device with the ability to record what you hear, say, and write. A tiny onboard camera tracks your handwriting as the microphone links the audio to where you are in your notes. The files can then be uploaded for “easy, searchable review” on a PC.
