Israel-based N-trig is the company behind DuoSense integrated active pen and multi-touch technology and earlier this week they announced that Intel added this technology to its 10.1-inch Education Tablet, a slate built exclusively for the education market.

According to Robert J. Baker, Cincinnati Country Day School's director of technology, "when you want to take advantage of the power of a stylus, it is essential that you have an active digitizer solution like N-trig’s. Most people are not aware of the exponential difference in performance between active pens and a capacitive stylus, like you get with an iPad or other capacitive touch devices."

This thin active pen was specially designed to garage within the 10.1 screen of the tablet, features 256 levels of pressure sensitivity and can be easily used to accomplish a wide range of tasks, from taking notes or quick sketches to complex drawings and writing complex musical notation.

Ronen Heldman, VP Marketing at N-trig says that "Collaborating with Intel has enabled us to better understand the education sector end user’s needs. With N-trig active pen, our OEM customers can differentiate their Education Tablet from others, while enhancing the 21st century student's experience."

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
