Cool electronic pen

I'm sharing this information with students about the Livescribe Pen today and Friday. The Livescribe pen records everything you write and can also record audio. It's a great tool, especially in college, to take notes in class. Your notes and audio recordings are then saved to you computer.

They are not cheap ($80-$190, depending on memory ) but there are sales and discounts available sometimes and it could be a good investment.

Here's some more info on it:
