Smart Note Taker is basically a pen which
is a very useful product, that could satisfy
the needs of people in today’s
technological and fast life.
With the help of smart note taker, people
will be able to make notes in air or on
paper,while being busy with their work.
The pen has a memory chip in it,in
which the written notes or the figure
drawn in the air will be stored and the
person will be able to read in digital
medium after the job is done.
This will save time and facilitate life as
it can replace the hand-written notes.
CONSTRUCTION : Since, JAVA applet is
suitable for both the drawings and strings,
all these applications can be put together
by developing a single JAVA applet
APPLET : Applet is a function of JAVA
which for example, is a kind of container
or similar to a file, which contains a set of
programs made in JAVA .
• DATABASE : The system installed in the
pen will consist of a database which will
help the processor to recognize various
words made visually in the air
Working can be explained in three steps :
CAPTURE, ORGANIZE & SHARE THE
It uses special pen that comprises of sensors,
memory, processor, battery and display unit.
When we write,it tries to detect the shape and
captures the motion and then display it on the
monitor. Now this information can be sent to
others by connecting the pen to a PC directly.
Smart note taker is a reliable and powerful
Simply write your text using the provided
ink pen. Then these handwritten notes can
be converted into editable text.
Easy-to-use wireless connection.
We can write our notes anytime, anywhere!
When we are back to our PC, by simply
connecting the USB receiver/cable, notes
will be instantly converted.
Writes on normal paper also with normal
The product will be able to sense 3D shapes
and motions that user tries to draw.
An additional feature of the product is that
it monitors the notes which were taken
before, on the application program used in
9. CURRENT PRODUCTS
PC NOTE TAKER
PC Notes Taker is the world’s first device
that captures natural handwriting on any
surface onto a PC in no time. Based on an
evolutionary electronic pen, PC Notes Taker
displays the users handwritten
notes, memos or drawings on the
computer, and stores the image for future
10. PC NOTE TAKER
It is the world’s first device that captures
handwriting based on natural handwriting
as an input and rest it works same as PC
Mobile Note Taker works in two modes :
Mobile Mode and Connected Mode.In
Mobile Mode note taker receiver unit is not
connected to a PC via USB cable. In
Connected Mode, the base unit is connected
to a PC through USB cable.
Writes or draws over any application screen.
Save your inputs and e-mail it.
Convert handwriting to text.
Compact and light : perfect for laptop users.
Pen-on-paper feeling : Natural handwriting
by sensing contact.

used on any surface.
14. •Standard USB
mouse and ipen as both can
be connected at
the same time.
•Works with all
both PC & Mac
15. HOW TO USE I-PEN NOTE TAKER
• Install the driver and application software.
• Plug in the USB connector into PC’s
available USB port.
• After successfully installing driver software,
begin testing by moving it around. When
navigating, have it in an upright position for
best accuracy and ease.
• Switch between Mouse Mode and Pen
Technology used in smart note taker for display is
Kopin Corp’s Cyber Display Technology. Cyber
Display is a ¼ inch diagonal LCD that uses
circuitry built on a silicon wafer, which is then
removed and mounted on to a glass. The displays
are integrated to miniature monitors using its own
backlight, optics, ICs and packagings.
Smart Note Taker works by measuring the pen’s
movements and matching them to the movements
that produce letters and words programmed into
its memory. There are two technologies used for
this purpose :
1. Accelerometer Technology.
2. Handwriting Recognition Software.
ACCELEROMETER TECHNOLOGY :
This technology uses a device called
accelerometer which is used for measuring
motion. A tiny accelerometer in the pen could be
used to detect the stops and starts, arcs and
loops of handwriting, and transmit this
information to a small microprocessor that would
make sense of it as text. Invisible writing in air is
achieved through this unique technology called
accelerometer that monitors hand movements.
HANDWRITING RECOGNITION SOFTWARE :
This software, embedded in the pen is used to
recognize handwriting of the user. Pen works in
conjunction with a regular PC on to which users
install special handwriting recognition software.
The handwriting recognition software translates
movements in to text on screen.
We get information in very fast and easy way.
Hence it is time saving.
Can be used as a standard pen and we can carry it
anywhere without stressing mind to carry it.
With the help of smart note taker, we can write
notes on any surface even in air. That is, we can
write notes any time without using a paper.
It has high mobility, versatile design and is light
Can be used for phone talks or by instructors.
21. It is used along with paint and JAVA graphics so
we can say this product is compatible with all
• Expensive, hence not everyone can afford to buy it.
• No templates and other sophisticated formats
• Can’t drag items to other tabs directly.
• Awareness required among people.
• Contents are stored in binary & no history of
With the help of smart note taker,
handwritten notes will be instantly converted
into editable text.
It is good and helpful for blinds who think and
It plays an important role in phone
conversations between two people. While
they talk, they may want to use figures or
texts to understand themselves better.
• Useful for instructors in presentations. The
instructor may not want to present lecture in
front of the board. The drawn figure can be
processed and directly sent to the server
computer in the room. The server computer
will then broadcast the drawn shape
through network to all of the computers
which are present in the room.
• Can be used by teachers directly or
indirectly, and by students too.
24. FUTURE SCOPE
Companies had succeeded to make similar
products and put them in the market. Putting a
newly invented, innovative product in the
market is not that easy. The prices in the market
must be well observed for similar products.
Future models could receive e-mails and pager
messages via a wireless messaging system and
could use digital signature recognition software
and expects it to understand cursive.
25. China is doing the work to add some additional
features for the comforts of users. China is doing
work to add a camera and memory locator which
will directly show the status of free memory.
The system will try to improve a pen, which
helps people get rid of typing problems on
computer by the technology, which converts
your handwriting to text format on your PC.
However, the technology provides
opportunity to write on air, which means in
future it will be easy to display whatever we
write, eg; in case of 3-D views.
• Another fact that appears is similar products
generally works in a way that they store the
writing by memory systems and directs the
data to computer. We will vanish this time lag
by using a technology that the data will be
sent to PC directly not by storing.
• It is sure it will be hard to eliminate the other
products as our rivals, but it has certain
advantages over others : high mobility,
versatile design and its ideal weight.
