Montblanc is best known for its luxury pens, watches, perfumes and leather goods. Moantlanc’s now introduces Augmented paper, pen and notebook, which German Company debuted this week at IFA conference in Berlin.
The set which costs $725, includes a modified version of Montblanc StarWalker pen plus a “black Italian leather” notebook. Augmented paper along with a pen lets you store your notes and scribblings digitally and beam them over to your Dropbox account. It will automatically convert your fancy executive handwriting to text so that the plebians can comprehend your digital missives.
The notebook and pen use electromagnetic resonance to digitize your handwriting, similar to how a Wacom tablet works. The set lasts about 8 hours on a charge and can store up to 100 pages in internal memory if you’re writing away from your smartphone. Once the notes are uploaded to the Montblanc Hub app, you can share or store them however you like and the company also claims “best-in-class handwriting recognition” available for 12 languages.
