The Everlast Notebook provides a classic pen and paper experience, yet is built for the digital age. The brainchild of MIT grad and Rocketbook CEO and Co-Founder Joe Lemay, the Everlast notebook is Rocketbook‘s third successful crowdfunding foray (indiegogo and Kickstarter), with this round of Kickstarter breaking its own records.. With 17 days remaining on its campaign, the Everlast has raised over $638,025 from over 10,090 backers on its Kickstarter campaign. And there are 17 days remaining on the campaign.
While it may seem like a traditional notebook, the Everlast plus any pen from the Pilot Frixion line becomes endlessly reusable and and easily connected to all favorite cloud services. The perfect answer for the techer who still craves the comfort of the pen.
Does the writer have to manually erase each entry? No, she must just add a drop of water… and the notebook “erases like magic.” Compatible with the Rocketbook app, notes go online to destinations like Google Drive, Dropbox, and Evernote.
“We worked closely with paper industry experts to find the optimal synthetic polyester blend to create pages that could be wiped clean of Frixion ink, but also felt perfectly natural to write on. Writing on an Everlast page feels just like writing on regular paper with a smooth finish,” according to the campaign. “The pages do not have a weird high gloss. And, the writing doesn’t just wipe away.Here is where things get crazy. When you combine Frixion pens with the Everlast pages a dry paper towel doesn’t do a thing. But a moist paper towel removes every bit of ink. So you can reuse your notebook over and over again.”
How does it work?
“Each page of your Rocketbook Everlast contains a special QR code which 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. 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, like a messy desk. Frixion pen ink completely dries and bonds to the page in about 15 seconds. After that, you’re writing doesn’t budge without moisture. You can flip the page before that, but there may be some slight transfer of the ink. Frixion markers are great for adding a dash of color but they can transfer a small amount of ink to the opposite page. Although there are other inks that work, the entire Frixion pen line is the most accessible and they erase perfectly. Plus, they are just excellent pens. If you leave the ink on a page for a really long time (like months), it may leave a faint ghost behind, so it’s a good idea to erase every few weeks to keep your book in perfect condition.”
The campaign closes on 15 January 2017. Delivery is estimated for April 2017.
