I love technology. And I also love writing, pen and paper in hand.
Usually, these two things don't really go well together, but, thanks to technology, that's changing!
Smartpens are tech-based writing tools which record spoken words and synchronize them with notes on special types of paper!
It's a very cool - and very useful - invention that eliminates the worry about forgetting to write something important down!
And an additional plus point is that your hands will never feel strained again!
In case you're interested in purchasing these pens, here are a few of the best ones available in the market.
Livescribe is one of the oldest and best makers of smartpens.
The Livescribe 3 has an impressive battery life of 14 hours!
It uses its powerful infrared camera to record every single pen stroke - made on the Livescribe Dot paper - and sends it via Bluetooth to your smartphone or tablet!
Long battery life
Storage of information offline.
Needs an external device.
The Sky Wi-Fi Smartpen undoubtedly has the best microphone. It does not have the best battery life, but it does come equipped with a huge, 8GB memory!
It has an integrated microphone that captures any audio which is paired with your scribbling on the notepad.
Very useful for students
Short battery life

The Mobile Notes Pro 2 is a one-of-a-kind device doesn't need any special device to be used. You can use it with a sheet of normal paper!
However, you will not be able to edit any notes on a mobile device, you may only do so on a desktop or a laptop.

The Equil Smartpen 2 is similar to the Mobile Notes in that it can be used on paper.
It works on two different apps - namely the Equil Note and Equil Sketch - depending on if you're scribbling or recording.
It is compatible with Evernote, so you can share your notes and thoughts very easily!
Sleek and sturdy packaging

Syncing capability with Evernote.
A requirement of two separate apps on smartphones.
To people who like to write the old-fashioned way, this may seem unnecessary. But it does, in fact, help people who suddenly get ideas or take notes at random places and times. Being able to instantly record your thoughts, just by thinking out loud, is an amazing thing.
So if you're someone who likes to try new things, I would highly recommend that you try one of these pens. It'll change your life - trust me.
