We live in a world of screens. But writing or drawing on them isn’t always spontaneous and doesn’t always feel natural, especially if they’re put away somewhere. Screens are useful, sure. We love our screens, too. But sometimes, they’re just too limiting.
Phree lets you write, draw, annotate, and express yourself in countless other ways, on virtually any surface.
Phree™ will easily connect to all your devices: phone, tablet, laptop, TV…anything with a Bluetooth connection. And Phree is compatible with software and apps like Office, OneNote, EverNote, Acrobat, Google Handwriting Keyboard, Viber and more. So you can instantly sketch or jot down ideas, notes, thoughts, email addresses and phone numbers...whatever crosses your mind!
You’ll use Phree in ways you never expected.
It even functions as a headset and has an integrated screen for brief texts. When you get one, just write back and send.
A lot of thought and prototyping was invested in Phree to ensure a great user experience. It’s thin and it has an oval cross section, so it’s both useful and comfortable. And when you hold Phree in a writing position, the touch display always faces you for easy activation. Just touch to change from a pen to a highlighter, or from red to blue, or from messaging to dialing.
