Detailed information

Draw a calculator with this pen on special "fly paper", and the drawing becomes a real working calculator, just like magic!  The Leapfrog Flypen has a miniature video camera that keeps track of what's being drawn to enable it to work in other "magical" ways.  It even comes with a built-in speaker and headphones jack.  Dick tries to demonstrate it and it goes "Low Battery".
