    im looking for a pen that doesn't need any special hardware to use. Do you know of any pen like this that uses just normal paper? or even if it uses special paper but without all the extra hardware?

    @KrazyKookieMonster a pen is not a pen because i want to take my notes and make them digital with less work and less time invested into doing it, my analog pen requires much more work to do that than a digital pen
