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, the Sky wifi 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 was founded in 2007 and is headquartered in Oakland, California. The company has received funding from firms such as Scale, VantagePoint and Crosslink Capital, along with other participants.
