Meet Phree, a New Digital Pen That Will Allow You to Write Almost Anywhere!
OTM Technologies, an Israeli company created a digital pen that allows you to write and draw anywhere on nearly any surface (apart from glass and very bumpy surfaces). Named Phree, this stylus uses an optical sensor in order to calculate an object’s motion in three dimensions, whilst connecting to various devices via Bluetooth such as laptops, smartphones, tablets, and many others. The connection between Phree and your device is fewer than 15 milliseconds, which is pretty much instant.
Phree is compatible with Windows, Android and other handwriting recognition applications. As well as Phree, OTM developed an iOS and Android app that allows users to make notes without opening their devices. The notes can be taken anywhere, from their arm to a banana. Phree’s tip has many levels of pressure, and can, therefore, be used as a brush, which proves to be useful for illustrators.
Phree is currently available for pre-order with a price of $198. The company raised their funds via Indiegogo, collecting over $1.5 million, which is over a 1000% their original goal.
