eWriter maker Improv Electronics has unveiled the latest addition to its Boogie Board LCD eWriter lineup. Like the Boogie Board Rip
released last year, the new Boogie Board Jot boasts a 9.5-inch Reflex LCD writing surface that doesn’t draw any power to write on and retain an image but, unlike that model, doesn’t pack any onboard storage for your digital doodles.
Not so long ago, leaving a message for other members of the household would often involve sticking a note on the fridge and hoping they saw it. Now that just about everybody has a mobile phone, hastily scribbled notes have given way to hastily thumbed text messages or a quick voice, or even video call. Native Union is looking to somehow combine the almost lost art of not-so-instant messaging with the more modern video call with its Play video memo pad.
Improv Electronics has announced some new additions to its Boogie Board LCD writing tablet brand. The original
digital contender to the note book is being joined by a new bigger-screen version, and one that includes a binder-friendly casing. There's also a new accessory for the original 8.5-inch device that can be attached to a fridge door, wall or almost any other flat surface to act as a slide-in home for a Boogie Board.
The e-Reader has been a success story, there's not much doubt about that. But with only various shades of gray offered by e-Ink, most manufacturers are now diving into color LCD devices (with the notable exception of Amazon). Now China's Shenzhen Guangxuntong Communication Technology has announced a paper-like color display on its new S700 e-notepad, although exactly what technology is used to achieve this has not been revealed. Here's what we do know...
If you need something a little more responsive and modern than an Etch-a-Sketch
and can't wait for a Scribble
to break cover, then perhaps the Boogie Board can help. The pressure-sensitive LCD display requires no power to retain an image, and is ideal for virtually any task that requires a temporary note to be taken.
