The Pulse  is truly a revolutionary handwriting capture tool. Not only does the Pulse capture what you write, it also links audio to it! How cool is that? This means you can take notes in class and at the same time capture the lecture. You can then replay any part of the lecture by just tapping the area of interest in your notes.

A nice video demo can be found here as well as the specs on this sleek tool.

A few minor drawbacks:

  • the battery is not replaceable
  • the Pulse uses Livescribe’s specially printed paper (however it is possible to print your own paper)
  • ink cartridges must come from Livescribe
