Abstract of Smart Quill
Lyndsay Williams of Microsoft Research's Cambridge UK lab is the inventor
of the Smartquill
,a pen that can remember the words that it is used to write,
and then transform them into computer text . The idea that "it would be neat
to put all of a handheld-PDA type computer in a pen," came to the inventor
in her sleep . "It's the pen for the new millennium," she says. Encouraged
by Nigel Ballard, a leading consultant to the mobile computer industry, Williams
took her prototype to the British Telecommunications Research Lab, where she was
promptly hired and given money and institutional support for her project. The
prototype, called SmartQuil, has been developed by world-leading research laboratories
run by BT (formerly British Telecom) at Martlesham, eastern England. It is claimed
to be the biggest revolution in handwriting since the invention of the pen.
sleek and stylish prototype pen is different from other electronic pens on the
market today in that users don't have to write on a special pad in order to record
what they write. User could use any surface for writing such as paper, tablet,
screen or even air. The SmartQuill isn't all space-age, though -- it contains
an ink cartridge so that users can see what they write down on paper. Smart Quill contains sensors that record movement by using the earth's gravity system, irrespective
of the platform used. The pen records the information inserted by the user. Your
words of wisdom can also be uploaded to your PC through the "digital inkwell",
while the files that you might want to view on the pen are downloaded to Smart Quill as well.
is an interesting idea, and it even comes with one attribute that makes entire
history of pens pale by comparison-if someone else picks your SmartQuill and tries
to write with it- it won't. Because user can train the pen to recognize a particular
handwriting. Hence SmartQuill recognizes only the owner's handwriting. SmartQuill
is a computer housed within a pen which allows you to do what a normal personal
organizer does .It's really mobile because of it's smaller size and one handed
use. People could use the pen in the office to replace a keyboard, but the main
attraction will be for users who usually take notes by hand on the road and type
them up when returning to the office. SmartQuill will let them skip the step of
typing up their notes.
Working of Smart Quill
SmartQuill is slightly larger
than an ordinary fountain pen. Users can enter information into these applications
by pushing a button on the pen and writing down what they would like to enter
.The SmartQuill does not need a screen to work. The really clever bit of the technology
is its ability to read handwriting not only on paper but on any flat surface -
horizontal or vertical. There is also a small three-line screen to read the information
stored in the pen; users can scroll down the screen by tilting the pen slightly.
The user trains the pen to recognize a particular handwriting style - no matter
how messy it is, as long as it is consistent, the pen can recognize it. The handwritten
notes are stored on hard disk of the pen. The pen is then plugged into an electronic "inkwell" ,text data is transmitted to a desktop computer, printer,
or modem or to a mobile telephone to send files electronically. Up to 10 pages
of notes can be stored locally on the pen . A tiny light at the tip allows writing
in the dark. When the pen is kept idle for some time ,power gets automatically

" Memory and power
SmartQuill isn't all space-age. It contains an ink cartridge so that users can see what they write on paper. Hence a simple application of SmartQuill is that it write notes on paper. This information recorded in the pen is then downloaded to PC .
The information stored in the pen can be input to other devices such as mobile phones, printers ,modems,desktop computers etc for different applications.
It also provides handheld computer applications such as digital diary, contacts, calculators etc.
It is used for receiving pager and e-mail messages. This is possible through recent technology involved in SmartQuill, the wireless messaging system which allows two way communication between devices .
