Unlike ordinary pens which limits you to have your handwritten notes only on a piece of paper, Zpen allows you to transfer your handwritten notes to your PC where you can very easily edit it and save it. In other words, you don’t need to perform time consuming typing for whatever you have written on a piece of paper.
Zpen’s package contains: a USB compatible reciever, a short extension cable so you can attach it to USB ports where there’s not a lot of space, and a pen itself. To start writing with Zpen just clip the USB reciever to the top of the paper pad, switch it on and start writing.
Zpen uses infrared and ‘digitally modulated acoustic signals’ to send the position of the stylus to the receiver, where it is converted into recognisable text and automatically saved to a file.
