Precise positioning on any surface

The Anoto Live Pen works and feels like a traditional pen, but captures everything you write as digital data in realtime. It combines small, cost-efficient components with low power consumption and a long battery life.

Captured data can be sent to different devices, such as computers, servers and mobile phones, in real-time via Bluetooth or to a computer via USB.

With the natural feel of a regular pen, the Anoto Live Pen writes on any surface printed with the proprietary Anoto Microdot Pattern. This unique pattern works with the pen’s built-in camera to determine precise positioning, ensuring fast and accurate data capture.
