Titel: Bridging Paper and Digital Worlds
In our Paper Augmented Digital Documents (PADD) approach, the digital and paper world are on
equal footing: paper and computers are simply two different ways to interact with documents during
their life cycle. When paper affordances are needed, a document is retrieved from the database and
printed. The printer acts as a normal printer but adds a pen-readable pattern to each document. Using
a digital pen, the document can now be marked like a normal paper document. The strokes collected
by the pen are combined with the digital version of the document. The resulting augmented document
can then be edited, shared, archived, or participate in further cycles between the paper and digital
worlds. I will provide some historical background, describe the hardware, discuss the PADD approach,
give an overview of recent directions in this project such as the PapierCraft system, and then demon-
strate the new LiveScribe technology and our plans for it.
