SWEET digital notepad!!

I just found out about this thing. It's the Adesso Cyberpad A4 Digital Notepad.

"The CyberPad integrates the familiarity of pen-on-paper feel. It's a digital notepad with an electronic inking pen that feels and works as well as a regular pen. It lets you to naturally write as you usually do with a regular pen on paper.No special papers needed! Utilizing the electromagnetic technology, it lets you put any ordinary letter size or A4 size paper on the pad and use the inking pen to write directly on the paper. Even if the thickness of papers laid on the pad are 3/4" thick; your handwritten notes can still be captured and stored in the built-in or optional SD card memory slot of your CyberPad."

This would be a great tool for almost anybody who is connected to their computer but can't take it with them everywhere. Take your notes in meetings, church functions, grocery store etc then sync them to your computer. Draw a quick schematic for something and it's saved as a digital image. Very cool indeed. I'll have my hands on one in a week or so and let you all know how it works. I may need one for personal use!!

Here's some details.

Form Filling:
Digitally captures and store everything you write in real time with the ink on an ordinary letter or A4 (8.5” x 11”) size paper. Instantly get both a digital record and a hardcopy duplicate of your handwritten notes even when you are on the move. This is one of the excellent parts of the form filling application which translates the hardcopy to a digital data.
