Livescribe digital pen gets student test

Tech Industry
[ Music ] ^M00:00:05 >> I'm here with Ken Carrida [assumed spelling], who's a student at UC Berkeley and has been using the Livescribe Pulse to take notes at UC Berkeley. What are you studying, and how are you using the pen? >> I'm a chemical biology major, and I use the pen mostly for going back through notes and finding key words and phrases using the search feature on Livescribe desktop. And also, sometimes the notes get very complicated and there's a lot of diagrams that take too long to -- it takes too long to write down everything he says, so a lot of what I do is I review mechanisms, like these, where there's a lot of arrows and diagrams, and you can't really absorb everything he's saying while you're taking notes. So I can just go back through at the end and listen to what I need to hear. >> So it's right now playing back that actual lecture? >> Right. From this exact second when I drew this little arrow there. >> Do you find you're taking less physical notes or more now that you have the pen? >> I find that I'm taking less notes and writing down key words because later I can always just go back and instantly find the rest of the text. >> What were you doing before you had the pulse? >> Desperately trying to write down everything I heard. >> Were you also recording the lectures, or no? >> I was not recording the lectures. >> How have you noticed it's changed the way you study and the way you review things? >> It makes it a lot easier to review things, and it's a lot faster. So I'm more inclined to actually go back and review my notes. >> And do you use a Mac or a PC? >> I actually use both. I brought my PC from home up to use the pen, and now I use the Mac software. >> So you're excited that the Mac's -- software? >> I'm very excited. >> I'm here with Joyce Morrell [assumed spelling], who heads the developer efforts for the Livescribe. And this -- one of the first third-party applications for the Livescribe is one of your most requested features, which is handwriting recognition. >> Yes. Welcome. So what I'm gonna demonstrate is Myscript for Livescribe, which was produced by Vision Objects. So I had previously uploaded a session. So here's a session. And since I have Myscript for Livescribe loaded on my desktop, Livescribe desktop automatically detects it and populates my toolbar with a 'T." And if you hover over it with your mouse, it tells you that will convert to text. Alternately, you can right click with your mouse and hit convert to text. So I'm gonna select this document and convert it to text. When I hit the convert to text, it automatically launches Myscript for Livescribe and does the conversion to text. >> So the basic thing here is it'll read your handwriting if your handwriting is neat. >> If it's legible and neat, right. Now, if it isn't, you can always go back and make any corrections to the text. So perhaps this didn't read it as "A," perhaps that it read it as a "d." Then I can basically just go back and edit my text here, right in the application. I can also create a personal dictionary that will actually do a lexicon. So I can say, you know, if you see this word, then recognize it as such. >> So in theory, you could come up within your own shorthand. >> Absolutely, yes. And once I -- let me show you -- once I select the text, then I can change the font size. I can change the color. I can bold it. I can italicize it. I can underline it. I can justify it. So I can move it around the page. So some basic editing capabilities. I can print my results. I can send my results as an email, so I hit send as email. It automatically will launch my default email client, and then I can send this in the text. I can open it in word, so it will automatically launch word and put my results in. Then I can manipulate the text in word. And then finally, I can open it in notepad, and do the text there. >> And the idea is that this is just the first of many third-party applications. >> Yes. Yes. >> What are some of the other things developers are interested in doing? >> Right. Well, the developers are interested in developing a number of applications for our vertical markets, for entertainment purposes, for educational purposes, for a number of different -- and other [inaudible] categories. >> Great. Thanks Joyce. >> Great. Thank you. ^E00:04:45
