Livescribe Echo Smartpen

Award: Graphite Pencil

Graphite Pencil / Product Design / Consumer Product Design / 2012

The Echo Smart Pen is a pen computer used for handwriting capture, audio recording, and other learning applications. The pen has a camera on its tip that records a micro dot pattern on Livescribe ‘dot paper’ while you are writing, allowing you to go back to a note later, tap on it, and hear the audio recording from the exact time of writing the note, so a student can read their notes and listen again to the lecture simultaneously. Echo is the first product to combine all four modes of communication (reading, writing, speaking and listening) in a simple pen and paper format.
