The Pegasus Mobile NoteTaker can transfer your scribbles and jotting to PC with the minimum of hassle.

Attach plain paper of any kind and use the Pegasus electronic pen to capture, store and share handwritten drawings.

Mobile NoteTaker has a built-in LCD to confirm input. The on-board flash memory can store up to 50 pages (size A4).

Pegasus, a company that believes it has come up with a way to bridge the gap. Its answer is the Mobile NoteTaker, a portable device designed to store handwritten data so it can be transferred to a computer at a later date. The concept consists of an electronic pen with real ink and a memory unit with a monochrome LCD display and 2MB (50 page) memory that, when positioned above the writing surface, records all strokes on its scrolling screen. The effect is twofold, while you're making real world written notes a virtual copy of every mark you make is being recorded.

Mobile Notetaker captures your handwritten notes and allows you to edit them on your PC.

The package features a small portable capture device, which clips to the top of any notepad, and a pen with a wireless transmitter. Scribble on the notepad and your jottings will be instantly mimicked on the Notetaker's screen.

The hardware doesnít perform any OCR (optical character recognition), but instead uses internal memory to save up to 50 full-coverage pages as png image files, ready to be uploaded to your PC via a USB connection.

Using ultrasonic and infrared sensors, the capture device is extremely accurate in detecting where your pen is placed on the page. The scanning process is activated each time the nib is depressed but, if you donít press hard enough, gaps will occasionally appear in the final image.

Our pristine model complete with the original packaging was very kindly donated by Netherhall School, Cambridge.
