Boogie Board RIP Paperless LCD Writing Tablet
Available from: R1 299
Love it: The Boogie Board RIP from Improv Electronics is an electronic clipboard that will save handwritten notes and drawings to Adobe‘s PDF format for later transfer to a PC via USB. You draw or write with the included stylus on the pressure-sensitive 9.5″ dark monochrome LCD screen, which results in light coloured lines and writing. When you want to save your work, simply press the ‘Save’ button at the top. To start over, the ‘Erase’ button wipes the screen. It’s that easy. The RIP has 8MB of storage, and that’s enough space for thousands of single page PDFs (each is about 2KB in size).
Not so much: Look, it doesn’t have all the bells and whistles of the latest smartdevices – what you see is what you get.
In a nutshell: If you are either not a tech savvy kind of person or the greatest tech wizard in all the land, this nifty gadget could bring you great delight. Simple and useful, don’t underestimate the Boogie Board RIP, it has the tendency to surprise.
