Cool Gadgets: Smartpens

are everywhere. They are cool, often small, items that are intended to make things quicker or simpler to do, or to help us do things better. Well, the Livescribe Echo fits that description. It's all of the above.

Not only can you write with this smartpen, but you can also record your thoughts, take notes, or record other sources of audio. This thing is a writer's dream tool. Many writers still take notes the old fashioned way, glued to a pen and notebook, just in case an idea sprouts. Of course, we can now use our phones or other tools to capture those ideas, but there is just something about pen to paper.

On the other hand, having a pen that writes while it records is pretty darned exciting. With a USB cable you can hook up to your computer and make audio files or PDFs.

How cool is that? Want!

I am sure this new gadget costs an arm and a leg.
