The LiveScribe Pulse SmartPen is more computer than pen and Warner from GottaBeMobile picked it as his top choice for Best Gadget of CES 2009. The SmartPen can do math, record notes and translate whatever you write.
I’ve all but given up writing on paper, but this looks like the perfect excuse to pull out a pad of paper. The 2GB LiveScribe Pulse SmartPen costs $199.
Warner Crocker from GBM shot this video of the pen translating written English into spoken Chinese.
