Bluetooth/wireless pen input device

by vitalsign88 / April 24, 2010 4:50 AM PDT

ok I have been searching to no avail for a digital pen that streams instantly through bluetooth or is wireless for note taking. I have a net book so i do not want a receiver or a tablet pad. I would like to use it and just write without ink on my desk while I take notes. I would appreciate any help thanks

well how does a wireless mouse figure its position? therefore I assume then would have to use the same tech right?

Look at the size of the sensor in the mouse.

It's certainly too big to be used like a pen. That's one reason you don't see that used.

But that's not the goal it seems. I can only share I've seen such ideas over the years and if you want proof about how good it works, look at how many use such a thing and how many you find for sale.

But you want it so you should get one.

Just sharing. I have a pen tablet and write apps for touch screen computers, cell phones and more.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
