Tuesday 24 June – Main Meeting – 5:30pm for 5:45pm – 8:30pm

Alex Zaharov-Reutt

It’s the last month of the financial year, and the eve of the next, but before this financial year is over, our jolly, pre-July, June Main Meeting is yet to get set – which it will, wonderfully, with your attendance!

Our special guest presenter this month is Mark Parker, the general manager of Livescribe in Australia, makers of the world’s most advanced, yet affordable, technological writing instrument that GQ Magazine says is to pens like iPhones are to phones.

That is to say, of course, that this is one heck of an amazing pen, able to record everything you write, and even hear, and save it to your computer, smartphone or tablet, along with full online access through well-known services such as Evernote and OneNote.

Not only can it make audio recordings of the meetings you’re taking notes of, but you can also have those notes synced to the audio, so when you’re going back through your notes, you can hear exactly what was being said at the moment you wrote down important points.

Livescribe have several versions of the Livescribe pen, with the newest being the Livescribe 3, the model we will see demonstrated at our main meeting, although we’re sure to hear about the other models available, too.

Winner of the prestigious 2014 Red Dot Design award, the Livescribe 3 takes the humble pen out of the last few centuries and puts it firmly into the 21st, with the marriage of digital and ink a must-see inkling of what life could be like – if and when you decide to own one!

The best way to experience it all for yourself is to come along to the SPCUG’s June Main Meeting, where someone should also be winning one of the Livescribe models in our trusty raffle.

So… if you want to see what the pen of the future can deliver today, then pop into the SPCUG’s time machine – located, as always, in the Mitchell Theatre, Level 1, School of Mechanics and Arts – Tuesday June 24!

See you then,
Cheers
Alex.
