Smart Scrawling

Note-taking across platforms has never been easier with these hi-tech devices

Implications - Not even a decade ago, our first choice for jotting down notes was a physical notepad or notebook. With our growing dependency on computers and mobile phones today, however, digital notes are quickly overtaking handwritten notes, with engineers and designers introducing devices with the primary function of merging offline and online note-taking platforms. These gadgets make the act of recording astoundingly more convenient, effectively turning your scrawls into easily accessible digital files, and have potential applications for work, education, design and more.
