About Livescribe

Livescribe is the global leader in the design and manufacturing of smartpens, enabling customers to capture, search and share handwritten notes on the digital devices they use every day. Livescribe makes the only smartpens on the market that synchronize handwritten notes with recorded audio, making the ubiquitous pen more useful in today’s world. Livescribe’s family of smartpens include the Echo smartpen and the Livescribe 3 smartpen, with complementary software for each platform.

Livescribe smartpens convert handwritten notes and audio into digital format for access through the devices we use daily, fundamentally changing the way handwritten notes are accessed and shared. Pen and paper is still the most popular method of note-taking - a more natural and focused method than a keyboard and screen.

Livescribe makes pen and paper more useful for today’s digital lifestyle. Livescribe smartpens have an embedded infrared camera that detects penstrokes on special Livescribe paper, allowing notes to be recorded digitally in real time.

Livescribe has won innovation awards including the prestigious Red Dot Award, Envisioneering/Showstoppers Best of CES, The Tokyo Gift Show Grand Prix, Hexus Innovation Award, SIIA CODiE finalist, Scholastic Teacher’s Pick, BusinessWeek Best Tech Startups, and MacLife Editor’s Choice.

Livescribe was founded in 2007 and is headquartered in Oakland, California. Livescribe is wholly-owned subsidiary of Anoto AB.
