As any parent (or relative) of a child knows, the amount of artwork that they can produce is prodigious. While notebooks get the job done, then you’ve got a pile of paper. Reusable scribble pads, like Boogie Boards, help, but you can’t save the pictures (at least the version we had). The Oaxis myFirst Sketch Book looks to be a solid way to let the creativity flow.
And by that, I mean that it’s a digital sketchpad. Just like on a more-expensive tablet, it’s taking digitized input from the accompanying pen (which is charged via induction), so you can change line width, pen style, and the like, giving you different looks. The tablet itself has built-in storage, so it’s great that you can store the doodle, and then move on to another one.
That means that the images are locked onto the Oaxis myFirst Sketch Book, right? Well, not so! There’s an accompanying app that allows you to get the pictures right off of the tablet onto your phone – and then presumably to back them up in the storage medium of your choice.
Coming in at $99.90, the Oaxis myFirst Sketch Book is definitely a higher-end drawing device than you might have normally gotten in the past. For that price, though, you do get the tablet, a leather cover, capacitive pen (and replacement tips) and the charging cable, so you’ll be ready to roll out of the box. We’re looking into if we can get one in for review; in the meantime, you can get yours from shop.oaxis.com
