Livescribe Sky

The convenience of jotting quick notes on paper is tough to beat, even with that fancy gadget in your pocket. Livescribe’s Sky Smartpen aims to change that by combining the best of both worlds, digitizing not only written notes but accompanying audio as well – up to 800 hours of it on the 8GB model (currently AFK on Amazon) – thanks to an integrated microphone. Built-in WiFi delivers your notes directly to Evernote, letting you re-listen to snippets by tapping on digitized words or images.
