DiscoveryPEN is a revolutionary learning technology which significantly increases the effectiveness of learning and remembering. Our aim is not to replace paper with digital but to bring digital to paper. As such the DiscoveryPEN portfolio becomes huge - from 1cm diameter recordable labels to over 1000cm wall panels!Based on the concept of learning through touch, kineasthetic learning and through listening and speaking, this powerful tool is making in-roads in to many interpretation challenges to museums. "I love the sheer versatility of the DiscoveryPEN system. We are no longer limited to tablets but one project can have audio (and coming soon) video interpretations across many substrates. And to know that we still keep copyright over content is a certain plus!"Bringing sound to paper, make paper “speak” and you have a simple multimedia creative experience that inspires and excites children and adults.Many venues need extra pens in addition to the five or six that come in the DiscoveryPEN Kit. DiscoveryPEN runs on 2 rechargeable AAA batteries that can be charged by usb directly to a computer or a wall plug or the new 8 pen charger. Charging time is 1 hour and the pen runs for an average of 2500 audio 'taps' at normal volume. (longer if people use headphones)The pen has a 8GB memory (150 hours) which is extendable to 16GB.  Audio trails are prepared by sending us your .mp3 files which we will run through out workflow and return to you one .tp1 file for your DiscoveryPEN.There is a discrete hook for a lanyard to be attached and the whole pen has a silicone sleeve that protects against drops and tampering with the batteries and SD cards.Click here to see how DiscoveryPEN/PenPAL worksPrice is £120.00 per pen including recharegeable betteries and USB cable and lanyard.
