You’re now Phree to write, draw, sketch, and doodle anywhere and on anything, and when we say anything, we mean anything: tables, counters, car dashboards, fabric, and even – your hand. Historically, there have been other writing and drawing styluses out there – but not like Phree. The difference? This device utilizes 3D laser technology enabling users to write or draw on any surface and their drawing, laundry-list, document edits, love notes, or next brilliant idea instantly becomes digital ink on any screen. It’s essentially a mobile workstation. Check this out: Phree Kickstarter Video.
How Does It Work?
What makes Phree excel in the stylus market? Three major reasons: a new 3D laser technology, the motion tracking accuracy, and the unobstructed view of any computer, smart phone, tablet or even smartwatch screen. The team behind the vision, OTM Technologies founded by Gilad Lederer, Dr. Opher Kinrot and Uri Kinrot (Tel Aviv, Israel), is a consumer electronics company that realized the need for a better motion-tracking device. Phree was developed by using a 3D laser interferometer sensor to measure motion to almost any surface, producing a digital capture of your handwriting in high-resolution.
Gilad Lederer of OTM Technologies states, “We live in a world of screens that we’ve come to rely on for everything from our work to our personal lives, but often times our imaginations are confined by these same screens. Phree goes beyond the screen to help your imagination go digital, free of constraints.”
