I love digital and yet I am still a very tactile person.
When I leave my house to study, I love that I can take my iPad Air and not 200 lbs of study resources, BUT I still like the touch of paper.
I read on my iPad and Kindle because the convenience of having 100+ books on my device outweighs my need for paper, BUT there is something about scanning a book and flipping pages.
Even though I like the tactile feel of paper more than digital, I prefer convenience over the joy in my heart that a book, paper and pen bring to my heart. BUT now I can have both with Rocketbook. Never heard of Rocketbook? Watch the video to learn more.
I backed them early on by purchasing a notebook (there are only a few days left to back the project). The notebook looks clean, the app (available for both iPad and Android) integration is quick and seamless, but honestly, the fact that you dump it in a microwave was the selling point to me. I value all the various productivity aspects of Rocketbook but, the fact that I can nuke my notes is amazing. I wanted to start playing with my notebook NOW but it will not arrive until June…so I went out and bought a few Pilot FriXion Pens to see how well they write and to watch the ink disappear in the microwave…it was pretty cool.
The video shows and says a ton but here are a few helpful FAQ’s from their site.
We recommend 25 Rocketbook erase cycles.
2) FILE FORMAT
Initially, the file format which Rocketbook will save to the cloud will be a high quality JPG. Remember, the Rocketbook app will select, correct, crop and color balance each sheet. For email, we will collate the selected number of pages and send a PDF. We will also provide the option to store the original files in an online Rocketbook repository.
Your notes will be indexed by OCR with Google Docs and Evernote. We are also investigating the use of OCR to enrich the Rocketbook experience such as automatically adding a title to a page.
I only bought one notebook. Do you see a use for more than one?
