Funding Soon: The MobiScribe Origin

Just a touch under a year ago, we brought you a hands-on review of an e-ink-based notetaking device that went by the name of the MobiScribe (you can read that here). Well, version 2.0 is now funding over on IndieGogo, and it goes by the name of the MobiScribe Origin.

Take notes by hand and get digital benefits with the Rocketbook Panda Planner

Perhaps it’s due to the various ways that I’ve looked at – or looked into – for taking notes, the Rocketbook lineup was one that I was already aware of.

To infinity – and your notes, with the Rocketbook Orbit

When it comes to taking notes, most of the articles and studies I’ve read agree – when you actually write your notes (versus typing them directly on your laptop) you retain the information better, because you have to make on-the-fly edits for what you write down (to keep up) versus just hammering away at the keyboard for a verbatim copy.

Writing a review with Mobiscribe

The promise of digital note-taking is an alluring one. Sure, you can bring your laptop into a meeting and type your notes, and that gets the job done. Most studies point out that you actually retain more if you write – rather than type – as you’re forced to make decisions about what you’re writing down, instead of simply transcribing (most of us type much faster than we write). This is why an eInk device like the Mobiscribe is so interesting to me, as it seems to be the best of both worlds – notes recorded digitally, but in your own handwriting.
