Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 supports Ultra Sound NotePad, recognizes real pen-on-paper writing in real time

Now, Qualcomm lifts the veil over one more new feature of the Snapdragon 805 called Ultra Sound NotePad. Behind that sophisticated name lies an exciting new possibility - being able to write or draw with your pen on a regular piece of paper, and having your nearby laying tablet picking all your creations. The video demonstration below is mind-blowing, showing how you can write on a Snapdragon 805 tablet with a regular stylus, and then showing a person jotting down something on a piece of paper, and the tablet copying it to the tee in real time.
How is this even possible? The magic hides in microphones placed in the tablet. These microphones pick up ultrasonic vibrations from the pen and the Snapdragon chip is then able to decipher them into an accurate copy of all that’s written. This should be huge for students and artists, take a look at the video demo right below.

The G2's successor should employ this beast.

This is what happens in a market where there is competition - the manufacturers fight tooth-and-nail to develop new features/functions for the toys they are selling. Magic 8 Ball says Qualcomm has a great year in 2014.

Very cool feature, but I dont really know what kind of usages it have and not just for show off? Since it use microphones pick up ultrasonic vibrations from the pen and means need in very quiet envirvoment for accuracy. Also u need to be close to the tab/phone for this to works?
