Now to a gadget which could be very useful in your studies; the Livescribe SmartPen combines technologies from the humble ballpoint to the hi-tech graphics tablets. As if by magic, what you write with the SmartPen on the special paper is recorded and can then be transferred to your PC via USB. The device also records voice messages so that your lecture and seminar notes, or general musings, can be conveniently recorded, synchronised and stored on your computer.  The Livescribe website has a Pencasts section, showcasing digital doodlings from SmartPen users.
