Franklin Covey iScribe: The iScribe pen and paper from Franklin Covey stores everything you write in your planner in the pen itself, which will then sync with your computer. Apparently the special paper allows the pen to know where on the paper it’s writing — in the task list area or the calendar area or whatever.

“Used with FranklinCovey’s iScribe Digital Planning Pages and iScribe digitally enabled forms, the io pen lets you easily share, store, organize and retrieve your handwritten information by simply writing with ink on paper — the way you always have. …Using Anoto technology on paper, an optical sensor embedded in the pen captures your handwritten images, storing up to 40 pages in memory.”
