Digital Pen and HCI

The Digital Pen is a flexible medium.  It can be useful in many scenarios from simple form filling and data capture to more advanced scenarios such as Interactive Surface Development.  A leading Austrian research lab – the Media Interaction Lab have developed an Interactive Surface Development Kit that allows for real-time streaming of data from multiple pens via Bluetooth.  This is a very creative use of the hardware on the Digital Pen coupled with the Anoto Dot Pattern which allows users interact with Digital Pen and Paper in an altogether different way.

The product comes with an .NET SDK with sample code written in C# which will allow users of the solution the ability to create their own solutions on top of what is already offered.
