It’s this same sentiment that sits behind the Rocketbook Wave: a pen and paper notebook that can be instantly uploaded into a cloud of your choice.
On each page are seven programmable symbols that can be attached to an existing or new folder in either your Dropbox, Google Drive, Evernote, OneNote or even your email address.
When you put a cross through one of them and take a photo of the page with your smartphone, it crops and enhances each page and neatly stores them in the destination you selected.
When you take notes with a Pilot Frixion pen – which you can buy almost anywhere online – you can do something ridiculous once you’ve filled your notepad.
The ink inside those pens are “thermochromic” which means it becomes clear under the heat. So to erase the notebook completely, you simply stick it in the microwave for a few minutes then voila, the ink is gone. There’s even a special logo on the front of the Rocketbook that will change color once the process is complete.
What you have is an ever lasting notebook – as long as you don’t tear or destroy it during a fit of creative rage – that will keep your notes in digital format. For a $27 pledge on Kickstarter, it sure beats paying nearly $1,000 for a tablet and electronic stylus.
