eWriter Feels Like Paper, Syncs Like a Tablet
Boogie Board's upgraded product incorporates writing features both traditional and cutting-edge
Every once in a while, something comes along that's able to unite enemies and provide common ground. One such item — a new tablet that is simultaneously high- and low-tech — might just kick off peace talks in the modern struggle between pen-wielding luddites and keyboard-loving techies.
Improv Electronics, the consumer products unit of Kent Displays, unveiled two new Boogie Board LCD eWriter models — the mini Boogie Board Jot 4.5 LCD eWriter and the Boogie Board Sync 9.7 LCD eWriter — at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas in early 2013. Since then, the company has continued gaining steady interest — as well as smartphone-snuggling hacks — for their “eco-friendly, electronic paperless replacement for memo pads, sketch books, scratch pads, note books and other writing and drawing mediums.”
