New Magnetic Slate Allows You to Instantly Scan Your Drawings While You Draw

22 January, 2015

On the Rocket News 24 blog, I found an article the other day about a new tablet accessory called the iSketchnote. This accessory lets you put any kind of paper that you want on top of the slate, write away with the special magnetic pen, and watch the writing or drawing get turned into a digital version in real-time via Bluetooth or USB to your tablet or PC.



It’s a really clever idea, and potentially an entirely new approach to digitising 2D drawn information.

At the moment, this product has just barely finished a funding round on Kickstarter, so we should be seeing it available for purchase fairly soon.
