Phree digital pen wants to turn everything into paper

Despite the strong beliefs of the late Steve Jobs, the stylus refuses to die.

But existing solutions so far have one critical limitation: they work only on screens or on special paper. Phree, the latest wonder Kickstarter campaign, wants to set you completely free, by turning the whole world into a writing surface.

StaffPad lets you draw music on that expensive Surface Pro

Microsoft has always been marketing its Surface Pro tablets to creatives, but with the stylus that comes with it, it has mostly been of more interest to those with a visual flair more than any other type or creator. A new app that just debuted for Windows 8, however, gives that stylus a new purpose beyond scribbling and drawing.

Redmond is said to have spent at least $200 million on this purchase, which hints that Microsoft has plans to capitalize on the tech, probably for future iterations of its tablets and maybe even for new types of devices.

Whiteboard sticker turns your laptop lid into a scratchpad

If your laptop has a touchscreen and you feel the impromptu need to scribble out notes, all you need is a stylus. If it doesn't have a touchscreen, you can turn to your tablet, and if you don't have a tablet, you can turn to your smartphone (and, of course, there are things like Wacom slates). None of those sound appealing? You can go the old-school route, but who wants to carry about paper pads and pens? Enter the whiteboard laptop sticker.
