Maybe diaries and notebooks have been slowly losing popularity lately, but in terms of tactile sensations, no touch screen can compare with them (not to mention the tiny, albeit tiny, delay between pressing and displaying them). Touching paper with a pencil is not the same as touching glass with a stylus.
But in all other respects, and most importantly - in convenience, the "traditional" way of writing and drawing is inferior to digital.
Company Rocketbook Boston tried to combine the advantages of both worlds. Not to say that this idea is new: diaries that digitize images and inscriptions are sold in almost every online store. But the idea behind Rocketbook stands out: Americans have created the Everlast notebook that is virtually endless.
You need to write in it with a special pen, which is included in the kit, but it is almost impossible to distinguish it visually from the traditional one. Once you've made a drawing or note, you can transfer it to cloud storage like Google Drive, Dropbox, or even Evernote through the app. After that, everything can be removed from the paper cleanly - and write on it again.
The secret is in ink - it reacts to water and is completely washed off thanks to a couple of its drops - and paper that does not get wet or deteriorate. At the same time, do not erase the written with your finger or dry towel, no matter how much you try.
On Kickstarter, the project found extraordinary popularity: about $ 180 thousand has already been collected, while more than a month is left until the end of the promotion. One Everlast can be ordered for $ 34. The package will arrive to buyers in April next year.>
