Livescribe 3 is a “wireless ink pen” that instantly syncs your handwritten notes with your connected devices. A Livescribe 3 app then allows you to share your digitized notes via e-mail, SMS, AirDrop, Dropbox or Evernote. It also records audio at the time of writing a note and syncs the audio with your scribbled notes. Whipsaw also designed its predecessor, Echo, but this time around we made the Livescribe 3 more in the vernacular of a refined and comfortable classic pen. The pen features sleek forms, a diamond knurl pattern, chromed steel, and polished polycarbonate. Twisting the middle ring turns the pen on and exposes a ballpoint nib. A capacitive nub on the top is used as a touch screen stylus, underneath which is a charging port. The L3 experience feels magical, or as David Pierce of the Verge said: “Livescribe’s beautiful new smart pen turns pen and paper into apps and pixels”.
