Digital pens are an alternative for taking digital notes in ink for those who do not have a Tablet PC. There are a number of pens to choose from but the Pegasus One NoteTaker is the only one I have seen that imports the notes directly into Microsoft OneNote. The Pegasus uses a scanner that tracks the pen on regular paper and translates the text and sketches taken on the page into digital notes for OneNote. The scanner connects to a PC via USB and the whole package is small and light. The One NoteTaker will work on any paper up to A4 size and the scanner resolution is 100 dpi. The Pegasus comes with software to bring the notes into OneNote on the PC which is localized in the following languages:
The Pegasus web site lists the One NoteTaker for just $59 so this might be an economic alternative for those interested in digital pen technology for taking notes.
