Mod lets users send finished books to be turned into digital files.
Created by Marshall Haas and Jon Wheatley, Mod is a paper notebook that users can send out to be digitized after they have filled up its pages.
Mod integrates the best of the physical and the digital into one product. Users can doodle and write on the pages of a Mod notebook. When they’re ready, they can use the prepaid envelope that comes with the notebook and send their finished Mod to be converted to a digital format. Users will then be able to access their notes via the Mod app, which syncs with Dropbox, Evernote, and OneNote.
Mod notebooks come in a traditional thread bound design and three paper types – plain, ruled, and grid. The notebook opens flat from any page, making it easy to write on every page. The Mod notebook is also exactly the same size as an iPad Mini.
A Mod notebook costs $25 each, including return shipping, the app, and digitization. Having a Mod notebook digitized is free, but users need to pay an additional $10 to get their notebook back after having it digitized.
Wheatley told FastCo that Mod will only digitize their own notebooks when they launch, but they are also considering accepting other notebooks in the future.
