No doubt, paper can bring you better drawing and handwriting experience than touchscreen, but digital file gives us a more handy way to store and modify files, while NeoLAB’s Neo smartpen N2 has both the features.
The N2 is an innovative and advanced smart pen that measures 156.5 x 11.8mm and weights 24g. As shown in the images, the smartpen sports a gorgeous minimalistic design and doesn’t need an extra receiver. Using built-in Bluetooth technology, the smart pen is able to connect with your smartphone or tablet. When you write or draw on the paper, its built-in camera traces every pen stroke you wrote, and the ARM dual-core processor allows it to take 120 frames per second, and catching every single stroke you wrote in order to perfectly sync your handwriting and drawing from the paper to your smartphone or tablet, so you can backup your notes and sketches in the form of digital file and conveniently modify them in your hand. Additionally, the smart pen also features text recognition, 256 steps of pressure recognition and approx 1,000 pages of internal note storage capacity. Apart from that, its 300mAh rechargeable battery offers 5 hours of constant usage time or 2-3 days of normal usage, and the smartpen is refillable with D1 type.
