There’s a new gadget on the market that no college student should be caught without – the Livescribe Pulse Smartpen. The Livescribe Pen will serve to make college life easier and the following are five reasons why.
Save your notes forever
The Livescribe Pulse Smartpen is everything you’d expect from a Smartpen and has an inbuilt infrared camera that records everything that you write for easy recovery later. Working with multiple class folders, not having your binders handy, and having backup notes in the event that you misplace your college notes are all made possible with the Livescribe Pulse Smartpen. For the first time in history, college students will be able to capture everything they’ve written and transfer their notes to a personal computer thanks to the Livescribe Pulse Smartpen.
Recording lectures, class sessions, and personal notes
Not only will owning a Livescribe Pulse Smartpen allow you to record everything that you’ve written, it’ll also allow you to record audio as well. When I was in college I often had the problem of not being able to scribble hardly legible notes quick enough to keep up with the professor and the audio recording feature of the Livescribe Pulse Smartpen would have really come in handy. Having a voice recorder can give college students an advantage by allowing them to keep a personal account of every class session for later review.
Speech and text synchronization
If you are blown away with the Livescribe Pulse Smartpen’s ability to capture both audio and text in the classroom and be retrieved for later record, it gets even better – the Livescribe Pulse Smartpen synchronizes your text to the audio that was recorded at the time of writing. Simply pressing your Livescribe Pulse Smartpen against previously taken notes will allow your Livescribe Pulse Smartpen to playback the exact audio that was recorded when you were writing that specific note.
The Livescribe Desktop software is awesome
The Livescribe Pulse Smartpen comes bundled with the Livescribe Desktop software application that makes working with Livescribe Smartpens easy – and even adds to the Livescribe Smartpen experience. The Livescribe desktop software sports cool functions like a built in search function – that can read your sloppy handwriting – it can play audio back, organizes your notes, and even allows you to share notes with your college buddies via the Livescribe Desktop software – and even across Facebook.
It’s well built
Not only does the Livescribe Pulse Smartpen do a great job at making college life a lot easier, it also does it while maintaining a great design that’s not too big and feels just right in hand. The size of the Livescribe Pulse Smartpen is just a bit smaller than a cigar and sports an inbuilt infrared camera, USB connector, built-in speakers, an OLED display, a built-in microphone, an inbuilt audio jack, and comes with an HD headset for better voice recording. If you’re planning on being a smart college student, it’s a very smart idea to purchase a Livescribe Pulse Smartpen.
