Writing it all down
The Bluetooth-enabled Equil smartpen transfers your half-baked cocktail napkin notes to your iPad—or other iOS, Mac, or Windows devices—using the company’s apps. It seems magical, but it’s highly technical: Attach a Bluetooth clip to your paper and with the help of infrared and ultrasound, your words will appear on the screen. The $149 pen syncs your writings to iCloud, Dropbox, and Evernote, and will be available for Android users in two weeks. It was one of the more practical‚and budget-friendly—devices we saw at the Luxury Tech Show.
