This is accomplished via the front-facing camera, which takes pictures of the pages in your notebook or any other paper and saves them as digital images. Accompanying software organizes the images and makes them searchable (presumably through OCR).
Thanks to a front-facing camera, your scribbles wont remain as traditional as before. It will capture images of whatever you have written on the notepad and turn them into digital image files.

Casios Paper Writer tablets are designed for people who want a digital life but cant let go of paper or are more comfortable dealing with a pen. The Paper Writer V-N500-WJ, V-N500-J, V-T500-WJ, and V-T500-J not only feature pen input on the tablet screen but also come paired with paper notepads that allow users to convert scribbles into digital files. Of course, theres no indication that these tablets are coming to U.S. Soil a shame, really. Perhaps if the Galaxy Note 10.1 is successful Casio might consider it. If not, would you buy the Japanese version?
