AI-powered pen captures handwriting on paper and digitizes it with apps
Groningen, Netherlands, May 17, 2023 – Have you ever lost track of your notes? More than half of the world still takes notes using pen and paper (PenHeaven, 2022). This means there are paper notes everywhere. And most of them get lost. The Nuwa Pen allows people to keep writing on paper, but it also digitizes what they’ve written to share, search and integrate with productivity apps. Nuwa is currently raising funds on Kickstarter for its Nuwa Pen, which helps you to keep track, organize, share, and sync your note with a productivity app on multiple devices effortlessly.
Angela Webb, Chair of the National Handwriting Association, has highlighted the influence that manual writing exerts on brain development and cognitive functionality. The tactile sensation of a pen gliding over paper provides an immersive experience that reduces distractions and encourages clarity of thought – crucial In a world where digital noise is constantly craving our attention. Handwriting remains a preferred method of expression for many, seamlessly bridging the gap between thought and physical manifestation.
Even though we’ve seen products tackle handwriting before, like ReMarkable and the LiveScribe, users would still need to lug around another tablet or buy special paper, which is a struggle for most users. And when Founder and CEO, Marc Tuinier, wanted a digital copy of his own journals – so he could easily find back meeting notes and share them with his colleagues – he came with Nuwa Pen.
Now pen-on-paper lovers can get the best of both worlds. Nuwa Pen and its accompanying free app will help you organize, search and share your handwritten notes with ease.
How it works: You grab a Nuwa Pen and write in your journal – or sticky notes (just like a regular pen). The ink comes out and the AI-Powered cameras trace the lines you make while writing. Then Nuwa Pen digitizes them to the app and organizes them into your digital journal, where you can sync them with your favorite productivity apps.
The 28-gram (1-ounce) device is available in pre-order for $179 and its Kickstarter campaign is due to end early June 2023.
“The dream we share for digital notes is that Nuwa Pen integrates with the ecosystem of apps you use on a daily basis and we’ll continually be co-developing with our customers to increase the number of integrations,” Once a user’s handwriting and doodles are synced to the Nuwa Pen app, it is able to integrate rich elements, such as email addresses, phone numbers, and lists. “We are also working on recognizing handwritten mathematical formulas to solve and display graphs on the Nuwa Pen app. We continue to work tightly with our users to merge their analog thoughts with the digital world.”CEO and Founder Marc Tuinier said
