Its just a folio, a pen . You can scribe your notes or drawings on a paper and transfer it to text or digital graphics with the help of a smart phone.  That is Bamboo spark.
The Bamboo Spark is a smart folio with a smart ballpoint pen. It lets you write by hand saves your handwritten notes locally or within the cloud for editing, archiving and accessing anywhere.

When you finish a page of notes, press the button to save it safely and securely.  It is just a ink to text business.  

The Bamboo Spark can store up to 100 pages even if you are not connected to any other device. So forget worries about the loss of time and effort you spent so far. So next time when you connected the Bamboo Spark will get automatically synced to the device via Bluetooth and Wacom Inkspace App and once you connected to the internet to the Wacom cloud space.
A Wacom ID account opens up all the tools and features of your Bamboo Spark.  You can use it to access your notes on different devices and edit them even after they have been saved.
The option to edit can take your notes to limit less options of sharing with different users on different devices of different platforms. On OSs like iOS and Android.  You can also use the Wacom Inkspace web portal to access your notes within the cloud or share them in PDF and JPG formats with third party cloud services , programs and apps like Evernote and Dropbox

The notes you have taken on Bamboo Spark continue to live in Wacom cloud from where you can open , edit , save and present it at any time.

Universal Ink gives you the best digital writing experience and lets you easily share and exchange ink as simply as text.

Why Wacom making a pen system? Because the glass surface of a mobile or tab give adverse results while hand writing or drawing  while the paper gives best results.   This realization leads to the pen system that not only gives natural writing or drawing experience but also allows to convert to digital copy without using a scanner.
It works by detecting pens movements and sensitivity on the page, storing them in memory and transfer via Bluetooth to the Bamboo Spark App of your device.

What makes Bamboo Spark different from the competitors is ; you can use practically any A5 pad for your scribing . Even though the pad supplied along with the device is 30 sheets thick the 50 sheet thick pad also will work.  You do your work with the pen on the page hit the button and your image will be digitally saved. No need to say it can be used later.

So far the users are more satisfied with iOS than Android in the case of  Bamboo Spark were in Android stronger strokes are required to reproduce better images in the digital version.  This deficiency can be overcome  by a suitable update .

The easiness to write or draw in any A5 papers, conversion, edit, reproduction etc make this device price worthy. 

The package 

 The device : Pen looks and weighs like a normal ball point pen. Also the folio is well designed structure looks like a hand pad.

It’s an economical budget friendly device that encrypts your passwords and opens the logins automatically.  It makes impossible the identity thieves to steel your passwords.

Nobody can remember the dozens of passwords for the websites.  And it is not advisable to put the same password to all the login requirements especially in the current world where the hackers are more vigilant than the vigilance department. Imaging what happens when you realize that your e-mail, Facebook or even bank account login passwords had been stolen. Or what happens if you want to open a site very urgently and you forgot the password? To counter all those issues there is now a small blue tooth device the “Everykey”.Its a tiny device which will generate unbreakable passwords to your website accounts.

Actually what does “Everkey” do?

-         It automatically logs in or logs out when you are near and away respectively.
-         It automatically creates passwords that are impenetrable passwords for all password protected websites.
-         It uses military grade AES 128-bit encryption to protect those complex passwords, so that the thieves can’t enter.

So forget the passwords, forget the worries about hacking of your security pins or passwords. You don’t have to login and logout ever again.

-Everykey unlocks your phone, laptop, tablet, house door, car door, and other access-controlled devices when you are nearby, then locks them back down when you walk away.

-When you first login to a website, your Everykey remembers that login. The next time you visit that website, Everykey logs you in automatically.
If your Everykey is lost or stolen, you can freeze it through the Everykey App, or by calling the Everykey team. No one will be able to use your frozen Everykey, so you don't have to worry about unauthorized access of  your devices and accounts.
