Livescribe holds intellectual property around paper-based computing that enable a vast range of new opportunities to enhance productivity, learning and communication. Building on top of licensed technology from Anoto Group AB that converts handwriting into digital form, Livescribe has created a new mobile computing platform -an integrated system of smartpen, dot paper, applications, and development tools.

Just slightly larger than a Montblanc, Livescribe's smartpen is designed to replace the everyday pen as a user's primary writing instrument. Leveraging recent breakthroughs in memory, storage, microprocessors, connectivity and component size, the smartpen is an advanced paper-based computer, with both audio and visual feedback, powerful processing capabilities and substantial built-in storage.
