Equil Smartpen 2 Or How To Instantly Convert Your Hand Notes Into Digital Format
Equil Smartpen 2 is a “magic pen” that allows you to take classic paper notes and instantly transfers them to your smartphone or tablet in digital format.
The Smartpen is powered by a rechargeable battery which allows 8 hours of constant use on a 2 hours charge, connects to your iOs, Android, Windows and Mac via Bluetooth for notes importing, storing file management on the device, includes built-in memory and handwriting recognition software to save your notes while not connected to your smartphone as well as cloud sync with most cloud services out-there including Dropbox, iCloud or Evernote.

The coolest part about the Equil Smartpen 2 is that, unlike most similar devices, it does not require a special pad or special paper to work. Simply grab any piece of paper, start scribbling or writing your notes and watch them transfer on your phone in real time! Simply cool, isn’t it?

UPDATE 11/14/2014 – I received a handful of comments from backers of the Equil Smartpen 2 Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign notifying me about delivery issues concerning big VAT amounts being charged by UPS on delivery of the smartpen. Please make sure you check these comments here before deciding to purchase the Equil Smartpen.
