SEOUL, South Korea and LAS VEGAS, Jan. 9, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Today’s launch of NeoLAB Convergence‘s Neo smartpen M1 marks an exciting milestone in the emerging smart pen category. Neo smartpen M1 feels and looks like a traditional pen, measuring only, 10.4mm in thickness, significantly slimmer than other smart pens on the market. Showstoppers attendees will be the first see the world’s slimmest smart pen, along with the new application and features.
Neo smartpen M1, the latest addition to Neo smartpen line-up, works in tandem with N notebooks, powered by NeoLAB Convergence’s patented Ncode technology and the accompanying application, Neo Notes. Neo smartpen M1 recognizes any handwritten notes, even recognizing different pages of different books, and digitizes the content. Through the Neo Notes application, available on Windows, iOS and Android, users can organize, record, edit, share, backup to Google Drive, and automatically upload their content to a variety of cloud platforms like Google Drive, Evernote and Adobe CC to further enhance creative ideas.
The pen was designed to be an ideal alternative to existing products in the smart pen category that are either bulky, or require separate receivers. To reduce the pen’s thickness, even more slimmer than the former Neo smartpen products, NeoLAB Convergence has put in years of effort in their research and development to develop the core components, including AP (Application Processor) and CIS (CMOS Image Sensor), as compact as possible. As a result, Neo smartpen M1 – a winner of iF Design Award – boasts its slim, vibrant look and lightweight design, and it feels comfortable in a user’s hand.
Along with the product launch, NeoLAB Convergence also announced the release of the affordable video creation app, PaperTube, to provide Neo smartpen users wider and more exciting smartpen experience.
“When it comes to expressing ideas, we believe that there is nothing more natural and accurate than grabbing a pen and putting it on paper,” said Dr. Eddie Lee, co-founder and CTO at NeoLAB Convergence. “Our goal is to expand our accompanying applications to provide a wide variety of smartpen experience for our users.”
The former version of Neo smartpen, Neo smartpen N2, launched in the international market via a successful Kickstarter campaign in the late 2014, raising 20 times its initial funding goal within just three weeks. A Kickstarter “Staff Pick,” N2 attracted more than 2,000 backers, making it a top three tech product on Kickstarter.
