This question is a bit complicated to sum up in the title. I know there are a few technologies when it comes to digitizing your drawings.
- Tablets like Intuos and Bamboo
- Smartpens like Livescribe Echo
My gripe with graphics tablets is the hand eye coordination because I want to look where I am drawing. On the other hand with Livescribe smartpens, I can look where I am writing but it only records the movements and does not let you control the mouse cursor in realtime on a computer. What I really want is something in between; to be able to handwrite with a pen on a regular paper and simultaneously control the mouse cursor on the monitor.
I hope I explained it sufficiently well. I need such an input device for the purpose of making instructional videos such that the videos contain my writings and doodles as I speak. Please point to an appropriate solution.
