The Smart NoteTaker is such a helpful product that satisfies the needs of the people in today's technologic and fast life. This product can be used in many ways. The Smart NoteTaker provides taking fast and easy notes to people who are busy one's self with something.
With the help of Smart NoteTaker, people will be able to write notes on the air, while being busy with their work. The written note will be stored on the memory chip of the pen, and will be able to read in digital medium after the job has done. This will save time and facilitate life.
The Smart NoteTaker is good and helpful for blinds that think and write freely. Another place, where our product can play an important role, is where two people talks on the phone. The subscribers are apart from each other while their talk, and they may want to use figures or texts to understand themselves better. It's also useful especially for instructors in presentations. The instructors may not want to present the lecture in front of the board.
The drawn figure can be processed and directly sent to the server computer in the room. The server computer then can broadcast the drawn shape through network to all of the computers which are present in the room. By this way, the lectures are aimed to be more efficient and fun. This product will be simple but powerful. The product will be able to sense 3D shapes and motions that user tries to draw. The sensed information will be processed and transferred to the memory chip and then will be monitored on the display device. The drawn shape then can be broadcasted to the network or sent to a mobile device.
There will be an additional feature of the product which will monitor the notes, which were taken before, on the application program used in the computer. This application program can be a word document or an image file. Then, the sensed figures that were drawn onto the air will be recognized and by the help of the software program we will write, the desired character will be printed in the word document. If the application program is a paint related program, then the most similar shape will be chosen by the program and then will be printed on the screen.
Since, JAVA Applet is suitable for both the drawings and strings, all these applications can be put together by developing a single JAVA program. The JAVA code that we will develop will also be installed on the pen so that the processor inside the pen will type and draw the desired shape or text on the display panel.
In order to meet the technical requirements of the product we need Operating System Like Windows or Linux in order to implement software part of the project, Displacement Sensors to recognize the displacement of the pen in three dimensions, parallel cable to communicate with computer, software to solve the displacement data and finds the individual coordinate displacements in three axes and transform the data into text format, analog to digital converter to process analog displacement data and convert them into digital format, switch to control the pen and Rechargeable battery.
• Analog to digital converter
• Software program to convert data into text or string format
• Operating System
• Parallel cable
• Rechargeable battery
• Displacement Sensor
In the current market there are many similar products that are trying to convert handwritten documents into digital typed documents. In these products, optical sensors are being widely used to perceive the motion. Ink is also used on these products to be functioned as an ordinary pen. There are optical sensors on the pen. However, they have some lacks and imperfections such as being wired, limited in work space, non-practical and limited in 2D.
Companies had succeeded to make similar products and put them in the market. Putting a newly invented, innovative product in the market is not easy. The prices in the market must be well observed for similar products. The prices of 2-D digital pens are about 50 dollars to 90 dollars. The new product is 3-D Smart NoteTaker that has a memory chip on it in addition to the features that the previous pens have.
Smart notetaker is incompatible among the other products. It has some significant differences from it’s potential competitors. This plays crucial role in the marketing strategy and attractiveness of product in the segmented market.
The prior market is educational services and schools. In today’s fast and information based life; the faster and easier you get information, the more successful you are. The customers are going to be generally teachers and indirectly students. While lecturing the usage of the board for teachers and note-taking for students cause dilute of time and sometimes it is embarrassing. In order to utilitize the time and to take more attention of students smart notetaker is a great solution, which transfers the notes of the teacher on the board to software directly. It optimizes efficiency of time that is used during the lecturing and it is desirable for the educational
