Manufactured by: Cross     Model: CrossPad     Year: 1997

When Julie got one of these for her birthday in 1997, she thought it was da bomb. The CrossPad allowed the user to write on a regular pad of paper. The paper was attached to a clipboard with a radio receiver inside. The special pen transmitted the location on the paper, which was then translated to handwriting, drawings, whatever, when imported into the computer.

It was pretty nifty for its time.
