Rocketbook: Everlast Notebook From The Future
There are so many movies out there that have given us a peek into what the future looks likes. The world of science fiction is full of these assumptions. A time when cars will fly, dogs will talk and house help would be robots. What else, yes when there will be no space for paper only digital screens will exist. Rocketbook as Everlast Notebook is that digital screen. It is a pen and paper but it is so much more. Everlast Notebook is that peek into the future that was once only available to us in fantasy.
We all know how hard it can be to keep our papers organized. Every day we lose something a paper that we really needed and then we dig through drawers and shelves to find it. Rocketbook could save us that entire struggle.
The need for a gadget like Everlast Notebook increases as issues like climate change and environmental protection gain more and more importance. A majority of woke youth is concerned about the fact that felling of trees will accelerate earth degradation. 160,000 trees are cut down each day to produce paper. While gadgets like Rocketbook cannot completely stop this, it can definitely bring the numbers down substantially. So if you are a person who is concerned about the environment and feel guilty when you throw away papers you might want to consider Rocketbook.
How It Works
The Rocketbook system is made of three components; the Everlast Notebook, the Frixion pen and the Rocketbook App. Buying the three will give you the full functionality of this gadget. The system is a perfect amalgamation of simple but noble solutions with complex technological amendments. They sport an approach that is entrepreneurial in the sense that Rocketbook solves a problem with a very innovative solution.
- The Rocketbook Notebook
The company claims that it worked closely with paper industry specialists to produce the Everlast Notebook. They found an optimal synthetic polyester blend to create pages of this device. These pages can be easily swiped off of Frixion ink. It also feels very natural to write on these pages. Writing on an Everlast page feels just like writing on regular paper with a smooth finish. However, it is not glossy. It will not allow the pen to smudge as you use it. Not only this. You will be able to erase the ink using a slightly moist cloth.
Another interesting feature of the Everlast Rocketbook is the user preference it keeps in mind. The notebook is available in two sizes, letter and executive. Before you place an order for the Rocket book you got through a survey. The survey allows you to select the size of your notebook accordingly. Every notebook comes with a Frixion pen. That increases product functionality.
- The Frixion Pen
The company has advertised the Frixion Pen as any other pen. They have called it just a normal pen in their campaign. However, it is not convincing. There has to be some difference between a ballpoint and Frixion ink that allows the latter to be called a gadget. After all the Frixion pen is wiped off with a wet cloth but remains intact with a dry one, it has to be magic.
Here is where this gets crazy. What the company said was actually true, the pen is very much like any other pen. The Everlast Notebook is not a whiteboard book, they say and that is why it does not need a highly specific pen. You can use any pen from the Pilot Frixion line. Frixion gel ballpoint pens come in all different kinds and colours and are available for purchase online and in stores. So really it is just a normal pen.
- The Rocketbook Mobile App
The Rocketbook mobile App is a mobile application meant to complement the Rocketbook system. The process to use it is rather simple like scanning a document. Write notes and create designs in your notebook with a pen. Then, using a patent-pending image capture technology. The Rocketbook app will accurately and quickly capture and send your notes to pre-configured cloud services. These cloud services are the most popular apps that mostly all users use. So do not think that you will have to sign up for a very specific cloud service to support the application.
Seven Symbols of Magic
No, do not be afraid this is not a reference from some sort of a devil cult. Neither are they secret Harry Potter Horcruxes. The seven symbols are where the magic of the Rocketbook happens. According to the Rocketbook Company, “the seven symbols at the bottom of each page are the magic “buttons” behind the Rocketbook’s quick and easy cloud organization”.
You assign each icon to the destination of your choice, any folder inside Dropbox, Ever note, Google Drive, Box, Slack or your email address. When you mark that icon on your page, the Rocketbook app automatically files your notes in the right place. So really it is easy to use and you do have to say any magical spells to make it work.
What is that one thing that scares us whenever we make notes? That we will get the order all wrong and lose some vital piece of information in them. Not only that whenever we have to scan multiple pages we have to be extra careful so we do not misplace the order. You guessed it right, QR code is an intelligent solution to that.
Each page of the Rocketbook Everlast Notebook contains a special QR code. It tells the Rocketbook app the page number of each scan. That means no matter how or when you scan your Everlast, we can always get your notes in the right order. So if you scan six pages and suddenly remember that you forgot to scan number four you can just go back and the order of it will still be perfect.
Each page also has a narrow dark border surrounding it. The border allows the Rocketbook app to find your page quickly in any environment or background. So if you are like the majority with messy tables, the app will not get lost.
Revolutions are gradual processes. They are created over centuries before we see a drastic change. Everlast Notebook Rocketbook is a part of that revolution, the revolution that seeks to leave behind what is basic and mundane. It seeks to accomplish what is fantastical and Everlast Rocketbook is the first step towards that world.
