Recently we featured a posting about an interesting new smartpen from Livescribe that can record audio and link it to the words written with the pen. Another type of smartpen called the
Talking Pen – Multimedia Print Reader (MPR) is now available in India. According to an article, when the pen is placed on a book that contains MPR codes, it activates the preloaded audio files so that the user can hear the text as they read. Aadarsh Private Limited, creator of the Talking Pen, says that the technology can be used as an education tool to help those that are visually impaired or have dyslexia.
