The Pen That Never Forgets

Read an article published in the New York Times about a pen that helps you take notes. It includes a high-capacity tape recorder and a very small camera which films what you are writing. When you point at a word you have written, you can hear what the teacher or the lecturer was saying when you wrote that word.

    Thank you for sharing the article! I think this pen is a really good idea, sounds really amazing, especially when you’re studying for a test and you forgot to write something or missed something. Furthermore, it enables you to only write keywords instead of not really understandable sentences 🙂
    However, I’m wondering how it works when you wrote several times the same word and ofc, where I can get it 🙂

    Thanks for commenting! You’re raising an interesting question; I guess you have to write different keywords. As for where you can buy the pen, I’m sure you can find the answer on the net if you google the name of the product, though I’m not sure you can find a French version of the pen yet…

    One thing I forgot to say: I’m not sure I would like to hear the little noises the pen makes when you begin or pause your recording!
