Earlier this year at CES, we got our hands on the Equil Smartpen. The physical-to-digital writing instrument was pretty impressive, but like any good product, the Smartpen can improve. Equil’s Smartpen 2 looks to make some necessary adjustments, and even breaks free of the pen-and-paper world as a stylus.

It seems Whisper is also sharing some info with Government agencies like the Department of Defense.
