Musical Staff Sheets for the Livescribe Smartpen

This project is dedicated to interesting accessories for the innovative gadget released in 2010 — Livescribe Echo smartpen. Utilizing a special, built in camera and microphone, this pen can keep track of specially designed documents and record both your writing and any audio played at that time. The uses are practically limitless, from the boardroom or the classroom to anywhere else where sometimes what you’re hearing doesn’t quite match up to how quickly you can write.

However, the camera only recognizes when it is writing on a special dot pattern which is provided in spiral bound, college rule notebooks and a handful of similar products. Thus, Joseph McEvoy decided to expand the possibilities of this gadget by creating Staff Sheets.

TIPTOP – the first portable sound system

Tiptop is the first portable Bluetooth speaker that can be instantly transformed into an integrated sound system.

It turns walls and ceiling into amplifiers of rich, deep sound. Placing a source of sound close to the wall naturally maximizes bass frequencies. By placing Tiptop in the corner using the Tiptop Mount, emitted sound waves naturally reflect off of nearby surfaces – the walls and ceiling. These reflected sound waves travel into the room in phase with the direct energy from the speaker. This creates constructive interference between the reflected and emitted waves.

The Mount is a custom piece of hardware that secures the Tiptop snugly into almost any corner. Although optimized for corners, it looks and works great anywhere – at the junction between two walls, right above desk, or a nightstand.
