Today technology rules us. From communication to commutation to daily work, our life is surrounded by technology. As a result not only has this advancement made our lives fast and easy but it has also helped us save time and make our work more effective and efficient.

With this idea in mind that technology can be used in many positive ways that can make our lives easy and save time, many new gadgets and inventions have been made. Every year we see a new unique product being introduced. It is important to understand that before a product or technology is introduced in the market it is backed by a lot of research and development and then based on the need of the consumers the product is finally launched.

Different people have different needs and wants, and brands are constantly on the lookout for new markets that they can capture. The more aptly a brand is able to capitalize on consumer needs and demands the more successful it will be.

One such technology that is now being considered as a next generation product is Digital Tracing Pen based on communication stylus technology.

The Digital Tracing Pen will be a one of its kind invention.The pen will have a special tracking microchip and will be a multipurpose pen automatically recording and storing manually written data.

This pen will be based on a communication stylus technology. The technology is under consideration and many tech giants are working towards its development. The technology will enable details on how various nibs could be used with the device, for writing with ink, graphite and other materials, as well as an option for a capacitive nib to work with a touch screen. The mechanism will be such that the chip will be customized according to the person who buys it and will have their personal information installed. The chip will have a code that will be sent to you via an SMS and an app will be installed on your cellphone. The technology would identify the person’s handwriting and will quickly restore all data that has been written by the person manually on the computer or mobile screen.

Digital writing instruments, interchangeably referred to herein as “digital pens” regardless of whether they write in ink, can be used to capture pen strokes on paper and digitize them, so that the pen strokes can be converted by handwriting recognition software to a digitally-stored record of the writing. This way, a laborious, tedious step in modern written communication, namely, the manual transcribing of handwriting into a computerized word processor, is eliminated, greatly increasing productivity.

Accordingly, digital pen systems can digitize pen strokes across a substrate, by sensing, in some fashion, the time-dependent position of the pen and converting the positions to pen strokes, for input of digital representations of the pen strokes to a handwriting recognition device.

As recognized herein, ultrasonic (“US”) systems can be used in which a special pen generates or alters an ultrasonic signal as the pen is moved across a piece of paper. The US signal is sensed by receivers, correlated to a position vis-a-vis each receiver, and the outputs of the receivers then triangulated and correlated to absolute pen positions. A sequence of pen positions can then be digitized for input into handwriting recognition engines. An advantage with US systems is that the writer can write on an ordinary piece of paper that is placed on or nearby a base station which receives the US signals and converts the signals to alpha-numeric characters.

The communication stylus technology discussed in the development of digital tracing pens has been in consideration since couple of years. But the product itself is not to be seen soon in the market. Technology giants need to undertake a lot of research and understand its dynamics before they can actually produce the product in its physical form.
