GovLaunch: From Carbon Paper To Digital Pens for the CA Superior Court

That’s because the new “digital” pens contain tiny cameras that track what’s being written and automatically transfer the information to specially designed digital “smart” forms. This eliminates the need for traditional five-layer carbon paper forms that clerks had been using and reduces repetitive stress injuries, a win-win for all involved.
