The Rocketbook reusable notebook project successfully raised $120 000 through a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign. This sum is almost 10 times larger than the initial target of $11 000.
This isn’t the first crowdfunding attempt for Rocketbook. The company has already successfully completed four rounds of financing on Kickstarter and Indiegogo.
Orbit is a reusable tablet notebook with pages made of synthetic paper. You can use a special Pilot FriXion pen or a marker to write on these pages. You can edit your notes simply by wiping the page with a napkin.
Users can also install a special app which stores all their notes and offers the option of reviewing them on any device and sharing with other users. The app is based on optical text recognition technology that makes it easy to transfer your notes into a digital format.
The Rocketbook Orbit notebook is a plastic tablet with a dock station for your pen and a replaceable block of 20 pages. Users can purchase additional blocks of pages that are specially marked for task lists, Cornell notes, graphs, and weekly planners. The company also offers a copybook version of this device.
Rocketbook was founded in 2014. In 2015, the company launched its first notebook, Rocketbook Wave, where pen marks could be erased by placing the device into a microwave oven. This notebook is still available for purchase today.
