  • Rodger Campbell

    I would give this to myself as well. I work full-time and have recently returned to college at the age of 41 to get a degree in a technical field. After so many years being out of school and returning, it's hard to keep things organized. Being able to take notes and then store them on my computer would be a huge boon.

  • Renee

    My 15 yr old daughter. Her handwriting is so bad, maybe the computer can convert it into readable material.

  • Melvyn

    If I win this, I'd give it to… myself! I'm a technical writer and frequently shuttling between subject matter experts while I take scrawled notes on paper. The tool would be immensely useful and I thank you for running this giveaway.

  • Ennis Thompson III

    I'd give it to my step son. He's a great student, but suffers a little with his writing and comprehension. Maybe this would encourage him to try a little harder.

  • Renae H

    I would give this to my nephew. He does well in school but he hates homework. This could possibly encourage him to want to do his homework!

  • Sam Jackson

    I'd give this to my little cousin so that he could use it for school!

  • Jaxim

    I'd give it to my nephew. He's not a great student, but he's good with gadgets. Maybe this would get him excited to learn.

  • Lesha

    I think this would be useful in helping my son with his homework. What a great product!

  • jennifer b.

    I would give the fly pen to my husband. He is a chef who works long hours. He would really like to have one to help with paperwork and translating memos, etc. to spanish for his employees. I would really like to buy it for him, to show him how much I appreciate all his hard work, but money is tight. Help me give this to him. Thanks.

  • Laura S

    I would give it to my autistic son. He has finally gotten into writing, but his penmenship is pretty rough and not age appropriate. The Fly would allow him to write in his writing, giving him the pride of completing his work, but allowing him to put it on a computer and aking it legiable, thus giving him the added pride in accomplishing that which was said would never happen. He was never supposed to get this far but we proved them all wrong.

  • Roberto

    I woul give this pen to my daugther she is cuadruplelige she go to schools but sambody has to rait evryting for her at eschool she has a computar the pen wolhelp put in the compute and she would be able to do on her on now sambari has to do it for her it woul be a gret gief

  • Debbie

    My son would love this – he just recently graduated from the University at age 20 and has a whole future out there waiting for him and he would get so much use from this, not to mention he's a "gadget geek". On top of everything else he wouldn't be able to afford anything of this nature because he's looking at paying 34,000 back for the school.

  • Adam

    I would give this to my brother. He loves little gadgets like this, and will probably be able to use it more than I could.

  • Jeanne Lonzo

    I would give this item to my son, Greg, as he has dyslexia and needs as much help on his writing as possible. Regular spellcheckers won't find mistakes that are turned around if they are still a word. Also, they cannot find many errors as he cannot phonetically spell words. I just want him to have as much help as possible so he doesn't always call himself dumb.

  • Ashley

    I think this would be an awesome implement for my college regimen! I had wondered if it was worth investing in as a college nursing student, but after finding out that it could transfer written notes onto a PC I was hooked. If it works, my little sister would probably benefit from it more than me, and would most likely get a new one herself!

  • Sandy

    I would use this myself. I am a nurse in a fast paced ICU and this could save valuable time now spent on recopying scribbled notes into the charts.

  • Jennifer

    I would probably give it to myself since it would be a great tool to compile all my recipes together. I used to hand written it but found it too hard to organize. So I started to type them. Having this would save me a lot of time and effort.

  • Hsin-jen Hoh

    I would give it to my younger brother who's in Uni where he would need to take notes. He's also very much into music creation and the pentop would certainly help. Having this would certainly accelerate his learning and music creation.

  • Aravind

    I would present this to some poor student who cannot afford to buy this. Atleast I am gifted that much that i can learn myself with my books and notes. Anyway this gadget looks cool….
    Hope this will reach a poor student…. :)

  • Heather

    I would give this pen to my 11-year-old son. He got the orginal Flypen for Christmas 2006 and now it is outdated! He made good use of it and would appreciate the newest version even more. He is currently teaching himself to program web pages and is enjoying doing as much of his school work on the computer as possible. The pen would be especially great for keeping up his handwriting skills (the pen has to recognize it!) and for encouraging him to write out his math problems.

  • jasen

    I would use it for myself in college or maybe give it to my sister for her to use in school and on her homework.

  • Joshua Dwight

    I would give it to my pastor… he would use it for sermons he writes when he is on the go… he would be able to store his sermons on it..

  • anndrea

    I WOULD GIVE IT TO MY SON. HE SUFFERS FROM A BRAIN TUMOR AND HAD SURGERY WHICH HAS LEFT HIM WITH HIS RIGHT SIDE IMPAIRED , HE HAS TO LEARN TO USE HIS LEFT HAND. AND HIS SHORT TERM MEMORY IS DAMAGED. SO THINGS HAVE TO REPEATED TO HIM. HE HAS DIFFICULTY WRITING AND I FEEL SOMETHING LIKE THIS WILL PUT THE PLEASURE BACK INTO LEARNING FOR HIM.
