Hi there! Anyone know about any forums for discussing development for the io2 pen? Or sites/blogs doing this. The only internet resource I've found during the past years is Scott hnselmans posts on his blog and coding4fun.
Let me know what you want to know about Digital Pen? May be i can help you. I am in this field from last 2 years. We are service developer who develops digital paper to work with digital pen using ANOTO technology.
Thanks! But I don't want any particular information. Just know if there are any people developing stuff for consumers out there! I know Anoto is doing the form stuff and lots of small and big companies are following suit and developing form applications for all different kind of areas. But everything is aimed at logistics or health care. Is anyone developing any applications for end consumers?, ie the people (if any) buying the io2 pen? And is there a market for that kind of applications? Does anyone have a figure on how many io2 have been sold? Is it 10, 1000 or 10.000? /Andreas
Yes, We developed products such as below for consumers: 1) Digital Lab Book 2) Digital Calendar 3) Digital From the desk off page 4) Digital While You Were Put Pads 5) Digital Student Book 6) Digital Timesheet. More information @ http://living-paper.com/products.html and http://living-paper.com/buy_digital_pen_timesheet.html
From a consumer standpoint, I would like to be able to buy holepunched A4 and A5 loose leaf page, such as would fit in a standard binder or a Franklin planner. I've had requests from people where I work for these items. They just want blank, lined, and quad ruled loose leaf paper. These could be placed between the calendar pages in a planner, or as a loose-leaf notebook in a standard binder.
It amazes me that these simple products aren't offered, since that is the type of thing that most people use in day-to-day life. Even three-hole loose leaf, like used in school, would be a great seller.
Most of the paper products are very specialized (with the exception of the Logitech notebooks), that the masses see no value in them. I'm no visionary, but one of the promises that I've heard from every Anoto development company, including yours, is that "work naturally like you always have."
Most of us "always have" used loose leaf paper, from kindergarten on...
