How do Livescribe pens work?

When you take notes with your Livescribe pen, you can simultaneously record audio so that you can capture the complete lecture and supplement it with your own thoughts. The Livescribe software digitizes your handwriting and stores it in the cloud. You can then access, search, and share your notes on the Livescribe app.
