|TING (Chinese for „to hear“) only looks like an ordinary pen. In fact, hidden inside is a unique technology transforming this pen into a gadget that is a reader as well as a smart mp3 player. The sensor at the tip of the pen reads a code inserted on the pages of a book. This code is linked to various audio files connected to the book. TING recognises the code when images or texts are touched with the tip of the pen, goes into its index and plays the matching file over the loudspeaker (or headset output). What distinguishes this device is the short reaction time and excellent sound quality.
Since January 2013 the modified TINGsmart is available: a faster response time ensures more fun on games. Additionally the handling of the pen is much simpler because of neatly arranged buttons.
|To make a book audible the audio files have to be transferred to the TING Pen. To achieve this you touch the activation logo on the back of the book (or the activation logo inside the book) and simply connect the audio pen as requested via the USB interface to any computer (Windows or Mac) that can access the web. TING will recognise the title of the book and the additional acoustic features of a book can be downloaded onto the pen quickly and easily. The software installed on the audio pen provides a clear overview giving information on the books that have been downloaded.
In the event that files are deleted they can be reloaded anytime (free of charge, of course) and as often as required.
