An ingenious piece of tech that allows you to take down notes on a classic Moleskine notebook – with an actual (smart) pen, on actual paper (embedded with fine mesh), without any need for a rubber-tipped stylus or screen – and reproduce them on your computer, tablet or smart phone. Charge the pen, download the accompanying Moleskine app (available on iOs & Android), connect the two and you’re away. The pen will track your movements and produce a digital reproduction on the screen of your device (and transcribe it into text, for good measure). What’s more, your notes and doodles are all automatically uploaded to The Cloud. It’s a great way of sending yourself notes while you’re away from the desk, without going full Partridge with a Dictaphone (although the new version allows you to do that too). You can even export videos of your work, and the battery life has enjoyed a big upgrade.
