If this thing is really working as good as it says, than finally a good solution in making computer-suitable drawings outside is offered. The “Paperium” is basically a pen. With it you can draw and write as with any normal pen. The funky detail is that all your movements are stored in the pen and with the click of a button you can send the path you just drawn to your computer via Bluetooth. It combines the freedom of expression with computer-based memory and the ability to enhance the data after you have generated it. Sounds to me like an interesting alternative to most of this ugly table-boards. The people who made Paperium this is small company located in Vienna.

The pen is computing your drawings.

Maybe there will be good times coming at us for computing outside. The One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) also offers a monitor that is clearly visible in direct sunlight exposure, at least in black and white mode.

    This is really a fabulous sounding tool. Unfortunately, they only support Mac. Not only that, but after contacting the company, I have been informed that they have no plans of supporting other platforms (Win, Linux) at this time. A shame really…
