From Connected Sketch Books to Versatile Digital Pens

 - Aug 30, 2017
These tech-enabled back-to-school products range from versatile digital pens to connected sketchbooks that blur the lines between the virtual and real world. With the back-to-school season fast approaching, many parents and students are seeking to invest in products that are not only efficient but also versatile.

Standouts geared towards young children include 'Mozbii,' a color-scanning stylus that promotes creativity and self-expression. The digital tool lets users tap an object to virtually match its exact shade, in turn educating them about color theory in the process.

Tech-enabled products that target a more mature student group include gamified highlighter pens like AnkiSnap -- a smartphone-connected writing tool that encourages peers to challenge each other's productivity and study habits -- along with NumWorks' redesigned graphic calculator which is equipped with various math-aiding apps.
