Google made a slew of announcements today including the $999USD Google Pixelbook and $99USD Google Pixelbook Pen. The Pixelbook is Google’s shot at the Microsoft SurfaceBook and maybe to a lesser extent, the Apple iPad Pro’s. One of the biggest selling points of the new Google Pixelbook is the Pen and how well the Pixelbook and Pen work together. MyScript has announced they’ve partnered with Google to bring the Interactive Ink technology to the Pixelbook and Pen.
MyScript works in the area of high-performance handwriting recognition and interactive digital ink technology and worked with Google to optimize their Nebo app. The app is available on the Google Play store and MyScript says that Nebo is the first award-winning application of its kind that combines the benefits of handwriting with the power, speed, and efficiency of digital computing.
“By combining MyScript’s Nebo and Interactive Ink with Google Pixelbook Pen, people can easily take handwritten notes and create digital documents. This completely transforms the way people will interact with their tablets,” said Paddy Padmanabhan, chief executive officer at MyScript. “With Nebo, productivity is dramatically advanced by combining the flexibility of pen input with the power of digital processing, making handwritten digital document creation intuitive.”
“Nebo note-taking is interactive and it recognizes the intent behind the ink strokes a user makes. It enables ease-of-use previously not possible with traditional digital handwriting,” said Denis Manceau, vice president product management at MyScript. “Nebo users can easily edit and manipulate handwritten notes, write complex mathematical equations, draw diagrams, sketch pictures and instantly convert to digital form for easy sharing and storing.”
Nebo is available on Google Play for Pixelbook and other Chrome OS devices with active pen support.Source: BusinessWire
