Why we start this project?
There are a few items that everyone should carry with them everyday. We think pen is just the one of them. That’s what motivated us to start this project. Pen is necessary in our daily life. And I always believe that it’s better to buy a good pen more than hundreds of Inferior pens. One exclusive pen is enough. Most of us keep on looking for a perfect pen. It should be in exquisite appearance with smooth writing experience. And it would be fantastic if it also could be a functional electronic product. Now you don’t need to look for it. It’s right here!
Nice-looking and practical are essential of our product design. R Pen is a blend of our very best thinking and our very best innovation.It is a multi-functional smart pen with exquisite appearance.It is a pen, a voice recorder, and a pen drive as well!
Do you always couldn’t catch up the speaker? Do you always forget the points after a meeting, a lecture, a speech or a interview? Or for those moments when you can’t use the booms, lav/lapel mics, and other burdensome gear. We find that more and more people need a voice recorder at work.
We have searched many voice recorder on the market. Most of them are shaped like the left of picture and out of style. And it’s also the common impression people know about voice recorder. There are also some pen-shaped voice recorder. But they are too thick. None of these voice recorder meet our satisfaction. So we decided to design one that is perfect combination of fashion& small. R Pen achieved a breakthrough. It’s almost the slimmest voice recorder pen with only 12mm in diameter. It is easy for an ordinary writing pen with even much slimmer diameter but for voice recorder pen it seems not easy.
The way of reading recording files for almost all voice recorder on the market is to connect to a computer through a usb cable. But it’s 2018, we all use smartphones. Nobody would like to bring a computer to go outside. R Pen is the first voice recorder that can directly connect to smartphones to read and play recording files. That’s convenient!
MEMS microphones offer high SNR, low power consumption, good sensitivity. It’s much better than ordinary microphone.We adopt MEMS microphone instead of ordinary microphone though it increases the cost. Because we want our product to be the best. We’re working on it.
You may wonder whether the battery is enough for recording since the pen is in such small figure. There is no enough space to put a big battery. Don’t worry about this issue. We choose Ultra-low power controller chip to reducing power consumption. It can record continuously for at least 10 hours at a time.
How to use?
It's just so easy to use this voice recorder pen!
It is also a flash drive. There are 2 types of connectors--Lightning and Type-C to meet requirement of iPhone and Android users.
Pen Drive with Lightning Connector
Download ‘IPEN’ App from App Store. You can manage files just by plugging into iPhone&iPad. The app support many functions: *Move your photos from album to drive to expand memory for iPhone. *Backup photos and contacts *Files encryption to protect important files to keep from being viewed by others. *Play music or movies directly on the phone.
Pen Drive with Type-C Connector
There is no app installation when plug R Pen with Type-C connector into smartphone. Just find the drive in ‘File Manager’ and then transfer files between drive and Android smartphone. Also compatible with laptops and tablets with Type-C port.
With the development of technology, it seems that the pen has been replaced by the mouse and keyboard. Writing has become a ritual -- something that needs to be written down by hand must be important. Indeed, handwritten text has a value that keyboard typing cannot replace. That's why we set our sights on the pen in the first place.A pen is sometimes more than a pen, it is a recorder of life.
The metal pen refill is replaceable and use size of 70mm（2.75in). It’s widely available in stationary stores as well as online shops.
Free accessories supplied: USB adapter + Pen refills

Spread to the world
We have spent over one year developing, testing, prototyping. Actually we met a lot of challenges during that period. We even thought about whether to give up or not. Fortunately we overcome all kinds difficulties. Especially when the first prototype come out to us .We’re so gratified. It’s such wonderful and beautiful. All our efforts are worthwhile. We believe that everyone would like it at first sight. And now it is ready to hit the market.
First month after the end of funding: purchase of raw materials, such as aluminum，copper, pen refills, polymer lithium battery，MEMS microphone, connector, etc. Production begins when the materials are all in place. Oxidation of aluminum tube, copper electroplating, PCBA production are all part of production processes. Second month: product assembling and product testing End of second month: worldwide delivery
Any suggestions don’t hesitate to email us at :firstname.lastname@example.org. We appreciate to hear from you.
Risks and challenges
We have already completed trial production and units are all worked well. We also have found stable material suppliers and can be put into mass production immediately once reach the goal.
Well, challenges and obstacles do exist on any project. Although we don't see any direct risks and challenges, there are still some unforeseen obstacles that may fall outside of our control, such as unexpected demand and lead time or any delay in shipment especially international shipping.
We will be very transparent with you, and we will update you constantly on those obstacles and what we are doing to overcome them. We promise that we will do everything we can do to make sure you get our product as quickly as possible!
