Livescribe Inc., makes of the Pulse Smartpen announced that it’s raised $18.6 million in funding so far this year. The company plans on opening an online application store, emphasizing mobile professional needs and expanding its footprint both in the U.S. and overseas.
The Llivescribe Pulse Smartpen is an almost magical device that Warner Crocker couldn’t get enough of at CES 2009. The 2GB version records 200 hours of audio, 30,000 pages of notes and more.
Livescribe is an open platform, with over 2,600 registered developers. One application that’s really impressive is a translation application that takes written English and translates it into the foreign language of your choosing. Another application turns paper into a piano.
Congratulations to Livescribe and we wish the company the best of luck in its expansion.
