We’ve all been there. The boring lecture or meeting, unable to leave, staring blankly at a piece of lined paper meant for notes… and in the blink of an eye, that lined paper takes on a life of its own with doodles of hearts, suns, lightening bolts and other squiggles.
UbiSketch, a “real-time sketch-based communication tool”, doesn’t want these pieces of notebook art to sit forgotten in a pile in the corner of your room. Instead, they’ve developed a system that “reads” your sketches, and allows you to post them directly to Twitter or Facebook.
UbiSketch uses a digital pen to convert your hand-drawn sketches into digital images. The pen reads dots printed on the digital paper it is paired with, and uses this information to track its position and send finished images to your phone.
Once you’re finished with your doodle art, you simply tap a thin “button” on the paper with the digital pen, and your image will be uploaded to your phone, and sent to the UbiSketch servers. From there, you can choose to send it to Twitter or Facebook.
Here’s a video of UbiSketch in action:
