Digital Highlighter With Brains
Convenient capture of information has always been difficult. But now there's a solution. This new product is small and quickly captures any text material you can see.
Called the C-Pen 800C, this is the ideal method of keeping track of material you'd like to use for your publishing projects.
In the past most of us used a razor blade to "clip" articles out of magazines, newspapers, and newsletters. But often these documents didn't belong to us... so we'd get glares from those sitting in the waiting rooms (or where ever we found those keepsakes articles).
Well, now you don't have to deface anything. Just scan with the C-Pen 800C and you've captured your material in digital format.
Here's how it works. The C-Pen, about the size and shape of a regular pen, contains an optical character recognition scanner that reads type. When you drag it across a page or any printed material the scanned image is converted into text.
Text that you can edit in a word processing software program. Or you can even edit the text in the pen or send it to your personal digital assistant via it's infrared connection.
The C-Pen 800C has a 100 MHz processor, 512 KB of RAM and 8 megabytes of flash memory. It can store some 3000 pages and costs $199.
