Handwriting based form automation.
Digital Pen & Paper make the acquisition of handwriting extremely easy: all you need is writing.
Anoto Live Pen 2 is an elegant device, small and efficient, that encompasses the highest available technology: one digital infrared camera, an elaboration unit for images and a memory unit. The pen has also, of course, a normal refill of blue ink, allowing it to traditionally ‘write’. It looks like a normal pen, and is used the same way.
Anoto input system is normal, standard paper with a printed pattern.
The pattern allows the built-in camera to effectively pinpoint the exact part of the paper is used, therefore digitally tracking the writing. This information is retain in the pen until it is ‘sent’ to the Magic Box (that is the sending signal) that must be on the used paper. At this point data are sent (via USB port or Bluetooth) to either a close-by PC or – through a Bluetooth enabled device such as a smartphone or a tablet – to the form processing VisualForm platform.
