Warning: *privacy not included with this product

If you're one of those people who doesn't lose pens, then you won't be afraid to drop well over a hundred dollars on a smart pen. These handy--but easily lost--pens take notes, record audio, save all your scribbles and uploads them to your computer. They even transcribe your most brilliant musings into 27+ languages. Your doodles and notes and to-do lists are recorded via tiny camera in the pen and will all auto-sync to the cloud so you--and potentially a few others if that cloud isn't secure--will always be able to keep track of what's in our head. It's kinda like a spy pen for your scribbles.
