DigiMemo A402 Notepad
Selwyn Electronics in the UK has launched its unconventional DigiMemo A402 designed to add a digital advantage to conventional note-taking. While it uses standard ink and paper, a processor inside the A402 records the input to 32MB of flash memory. This storage is equal to roughly 160 pages, Selwyn claims. A CompactFlash card slot is available to expand the storage up to a limit of 999 pages. Crucially, the A410 can also connect to a computer through USB to serve as a tablet input device and give artists a way of translating sketches on their preferred surface to paper. Four AAA batteries can provide as much as 80 hours of continuous drawing. Selwyn sells its DigiMemo notepad for $179 US. Import information isn't available.
