This year, why not think about setting New Year's Goals instead of just repeating New Year's Resolutions. I have included a re-cap of the past year FlyPen revolution in december 2005, Top Ten Fly pen searches for 2005. If you haven't read any of them, perhaps you should do so now to see what you missed. It's also a good time to re-read flypen information and prepare prepare for 2006 surprises and new cool gadgets.
Finally, this is the time of year we think about new beginnings. Perhaps you should take stock of your current flypen items and decide if it's what you want to be playing at this time next year. If you find the passion has gone out of the job for you, then you should consider starting the process now to look for something that lights your fire again. On the other hand, if you still love your Fly Pen, congratulation. Stick with it and make 2006 your best year yet.
I hope this site has been helpful to you during 2005 and that you will continue to visit in 2006 as you work to improve your skill as a fly pen user.
And don't forget to write 2006 not 2005 on the documents and checks you sign with fly pen.

The amazing $99.99 Fly Pen, designed for 9-to-14-year-olds, is a stylish fat pen with a small digital camera aimed along the ballpoint tip. It looks at what you write in English, and it's uncannily good at understanding it.
The pen talks to you through a small loudspeaker but, wisely, also includes earbuds, a decision that should save some parental sanity. It is powered by a single Duracel AAA battery.
Some things the Flypen lets you do out of the box:
1.Draw a calculator on the page. Tap a formula, and the pen will tell you the result.
2. Draw a series of circles. The pen will call out a state capital or state for each circle. Connect the correct state capital circles with the state circles while the pen times you.
3.Draw a small piano keyboard. As you tap the keys, the pen plays the corresponding notes.
For more meaty educational options, you need to buy add-on cartridges that plug into the top of the pen. Three fly cartridges priced between $24.99 and $34.99 teach spelling, math or Spanish.
The pen's limitation is that you have to use special paper, sold by Leapfrog, with a preprinted pattern of tiny dots that allows the camera to keep track of where it is on the page.
The add-on cartridges come with extra paper, but if the toy is a hit with your kids, you could run out of paper after a week or two, and extra paper is quite expensive at $9.99 for an 8.5-by-11 inch pad.
FLY paper: Pad (3 x 5) by LeapFrog Amazon Price: $5.99
The convenient FLY Catcher pad includes 3 pads of 25 sheets of 3 x 5 FLY paper.

So you want to buy Fly Pen? Come on, do it - just $99.99 and your kid owns the most sophisticated pen in the worls - Japan,United States, Germany and rest of the world haven't started to sell it. Don't forget to buy this neat and very usefull equipment - FLY Recharger that I also recommend. You can insert simple AAA batteries but they will not last to long and everyday usage of the FlyPen can become not just a fun activity but also an activity of buying packages of AAA batteries. FLY Recharger saves you and gives you the freedom of usage and enjoymnet of the hi-tech toy(some say) or HI-TECH Gadget(as I call it).

Latest obession among kids and their parents is surely Fly Pen.I don't think it suits college students as Fly pen was initially designed for 10-14 yr olds - to play and learn, to have fun with other Fly Pen friends. Actually college students may invent the unique ways of using the magic pen. From flypentop.com Web site the pen user can download multiple-choice quizzes in PDF format that correspond to the chapters of specific popular published textbooks (math, science or social studies).

Location of Karmiel
For those who don't care about shabat travelling you have nice choice of shopping options - arab shops are open during weekends, Tiv Taaam and Keshet ( Musik's Shop), Keshet Givat Ram are open too. Castro Carmiel, Office Depot, Golf, Beitili and Super Pharm attracts Shabbat shoppers as those shops are outside of the inhabiited zone and may stay open during Saturday.

From there I wanted to check out the letter and word recognition. I wrote a letter, and it was announced back. Again, scratching head, "how'd they do that?" That was fine and all, but what I thought was more interesting were the game and educational sheets that were included. There is a map of the United States, and you can tap on any state and have the state or capitals aanounced. Games are "built-in" to this map, for instance you are told to tap on the correct state after a city is announced. If I tapped on the incorrect state, the FLY would say "try 200 miles northeast". Thought that was cool.
In addition to the map, there are crossword puzzles, quizzes, calculator, other puzzles, music games, weird sounds, schedulers, etc.
I didn't realize all this came with the FLY, and I was sort of blown away by the power of this pen at that time. My mind started to realize that there are numerous possibilities and uses for this device which will evolve over time. Carmiel?
Before trying out the FLY I was sort of skeptical, since it isn't your normal computer with a screen and keyboard, with all interaction being audio. But I was surprised to find myself immersed in the environment. This type of interaction completely makes sense for a range of applications such as those included with this pen.
My three year old (soon to be four) watched me and then started using it. He was very excited about it, and can only play with some of the applications right now. I have seen some reviews say it may be hard to use, but that is far from the truth. The kids will have no problems. If my three year old had no problems tapping on sounds, drums, countries to hear national anthems, then anyone can use this.
To sum up my review: Excellent job done, my hats off to the designer and all those responsible for taking this idea all the way. I'm looking forward to future software applications and to my child getting older!
My kid is now only 9 yr old, and he enjoys this new FlyPem Comp. This was a unique birtday gift, thanks Leapfrog for bringing gadgets to the kids life.
