Default The electronic notebook

Hi all,

I was looking at this: reMarkable | The paper tablet . I am always swamped by loose sheets with schematics, PCB layouts, annotated prototype drawings, that kind of stuff.

I thought, if I get one of these, I can download the drawings and schematics for use at the test bench, annotate them and make notes, quick hand drawn diagrams and circuits, random notes on a schematic, that sort of thing. And still all saved in digital form.
There's a Youtube a bit down on the home page.

Thoughts? Anyone here has one of these?

Jan

Another gimmick to spy on people and gather IP.

Quite interesting I think.

I think it could be an efficient help to design, test, keep logs, etc. But does that justify $ 500?
That's why I hope that someone here actually has it and could relate experience.

Yes, if it works as promised it could be very useful.

It is a dedicated black & white tablet. Having a non-emissive display that relies on ambient light certainly has big pluses… i reminds me of my 1st PowerBook 170 which had an active TFT screen which is also a non-emissive display. I believe the b&w Amazon e-readers use the same tech.

They allude to a new tech used instead of LCD, which from the tiny snippet would be even more analog than a Retina display.

I expect an iPad Pro with Pencil (and the right Ap(s)) would give the same flexibility in terms of functionality… more useful in dark conditions, with colour and not single purpose (that could be a plus or a minus), not as good on the beach. I expect iPad slightly thicker & heavier as well.

A question i have is whether everything is stored as a bitmap, or whether some conversion to vectors or text happens.

So it's a mashup of a Kindle and iPad pro w/pencil? Interesting! Would like to try one and see how well it actually works.

I like how they bill it as "The world's first true paper tablet".

What the hell were those paper tablets I used 40 years ago then?

Good question.

There certainly is some marketing hyperbole i think.

It sent me off on a tangent, David Hockney's iPad art, because my first thought was, what about colour?
