Qualcomm unveils device that lets notes and animations created with real ink simultaneously appear in a digital form.

Debuting at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show, Qualcomm’s new Ultra Sound NotePad has one of the most original concepts recently released.

The Snapdragon 85 is able to transfer written notes in real ink on a notepad to a tablet screen simultaneously. A representative from Qualcomm explains how it works:

Inside the tablet are microscopic microphones that can hear ultrasonic vibrations from the digital pen. The processor then uses this data to figure out what you’re writing even if you’re not touching the screen.
