Pen Full Of Memories

Bond and his clan are always sporting innovative gadgets that look cool and make us plebs feel in-adept! Taking a pot-shot at Q’s ability is the U Drive Memory Pen and will hopefully be a fitting answer to pen and memory needs! Let me explain, the tip of this slick ink-less pen actually holds sensors that “read” and store the written text / sketches into the built-in memory card. The info thus stored can be accessed via the USB key at the rear of the pen. In short you don’t need any paper to jot down notes, just the action of writing on any surface (hand, table, paper etc.) is sufficient. It doesn’t even require external battery and recharges when hooked into the comp.

The stored data is easily edited once retrieved via the computer, and this feature makes it an absolutely brilliant product! Picture sitting in the train, on your way home and suddenly inspiration hits you! Use this pen to draw up an imaginary sketch and later on refine it via your computer. Awesome!

  • Its design is cool, and concept is little bit stale
    I think you maybe have to find another ways to bring a fresh air

    First off, before I go any further, I have to say that this idea captivated me. Not in a way that means is is amazing, but that it provoked many different branching ideas for me.
    The design looks a bit outdated. I think a more sleek approach would be cool. As for the idea, I have a feeling that this will stay an imaginary product for a long time. The idea is definitely marketable, and it is absolutely convenient. except that this pen would be very very expensive, and probably highly prone to damage. Also I'm assuming from the description that you actually sketch with this pen in mid air, without anything else. So what if the train is crowded? How does having this pen benefit me any more than having a notepad and a regular pen? I mean, notepads are small, and easy to carry around. Is this the new notepad?
    It is also mentioned that "sketches" can be edited later on a computer. This is really the best part of the idea, because it takes everything we want in portability to the next level in a simple way. But you know what would really make this part better? If you used bluetooth. How many sketches can this pen hold at one time? If you make a sketch and you want to make a million more but you don't have any more space because the pen at full capacity, how do you alleviate that problem? Would I have to just keep dumping out the files on my computer? Why not allow me to send them automatically at any wi-fi area directly to my computer?
    I know that this would hack the price up even more, but it would already be expensive. I hope that this idea is messed with and tossed around enough that it somehow becomes a possibility, despite the kinks.
