iSketchnote Brings Pen & Paper Sketches To iPad At CES

iskn logo

The iPad is the perfect tool for creativity, productivity, and innovation. However, it’s often difficult to draw and write on an iPad using your finger or stylus. The folks at ISKN have developed a solution that will make creating digital art and notes much easier.

Jamie and Nick interviewed Claudia Vance from ISKN about iSketchnote, a product that instantaneously transfers your pen-and-paper notes and drawings to your iPad. Just place a notebook or sheet of paper over the Bluetooth-connected Slate and use the included pens to draw or write whatever you want. As you sketch, your creations will be digitized instantly, and you can view and edit them using the free iSketchnote app on your iPad.

You can purchase the iSketchnote pack, which includes the Slate, two pens, and a kickstand-enabled cover for just $179.99 on the iSketchnote website. They are accepting pre-orders now and will begin shipping later this year.

The BoogieBoard from Kent Display

The Boogie Board

Do you remember when you use to hang a white board on the refrigerator or on your door and when you wanted to leave a note you would take the pen that was always hang by a string to it and try to write a note. I say try because most of the time the marker was either dry or worn out. Maybe its a piece of paper with a pencil hanging from it. What ever the case the Boogie Board is here to replace it.

It is a light weight only 4.2 oz and very thin 1/8 of an inch thick. It uses reflective, pressure-sensitive, plastic liquid crystal display that you write on. Although it comes with a stylus, you can use anything to write on it as long it creates enough pressure. To erase the board, you simply push a button at the top of the board. This will erase the whole board, at this time there is no way to erase a part of the board.

The messages on the board can be seen best in normal room light and the writing will appear dimmer as the room gets darker. It is very durable and can be used more then 50,000 times. The Boogie Board can be found at Amazon or Brookstone along with the Boogie Board web site for as low as $39.95. Joe from Kent Display at CES 2011 also showed Andy the an electronic skin for the iPhone or iPod called the Skin-flick. The design on the Skin-Flick appears or disappears by flicking on the skin. The Skin-flick should be available later this year.
