[Athen] Smart Pen

Hi all,

I went to the site Shelley just recommended and looked up "where to buy" -I
clicked on Amazon.com and the site came up in French. Not Amazon. Another
site. While I'm ok with doing business in French, not EVERYONE is! I wonder
if the Papershow folks know there's a glitch? There doesn't seem to be a
'contact us' link there that I can find.

Any ideas on how to pass that along to them?

I suppose that depends on your definition of "smart pen" and what they want
it to do. As for note taking support, the Fly Fusion (by Leapfrog) was
taken off the market last year. A slightly different "smartness" is
available with Papershow, a smartpen that takes what it writes and sends it
wirelessly to a computer in real time (think "paper version of a mimio or
eBeam"). It uses the same microdot paper technology as the Livescribe
Pulse. Thus a faculty member could simply write on a piece of paper and
project his live scribblings to the class. It works with both Macs and PCs;
here's the website:

I have our faculty development people asking me about smart pens. I know of
the LiveScribe. What other ones are there that I should look at?
