iSketchnote | $149 USD
iSketchnote is a brilliant ipad cover that integrates a new digitizing technology with the convenience of a notebook. simply put, iSketchnote transfers your notes and sketches instantly. the developers invented a way to combine the real experience of pen and paper with digital technology. the app lets you digitize your sketches and notes as your write or draw them. you can even set it up to recognize the colors and thickness of certain pens.
the pens are fashioned after regular old pens but don’t require batteries or any type of electrical charge. the case contains a sensor matrix that recognizes and tracks the pen in real time. each pen has a permanent magnet ring that communicates with this matrix. as the moment the pens only come in a black ballpoint and an orange and black felt.
the item is still on kickstarter and if you pledge $149 before october 10th then the iSketchnote could be yours come may 2014. if you choose to wait until the product has launched be prepared to dish out around $190.
sunday marks the first official day of fall. as of lately, i’ve been really trying to revamp my whole wardrobe. i’m 25 now and i don’t know.. something about this age makes me finally want to start working on my personal style. i’m a tomboy all day but there are some days when i want to dress up and be more of a girly girl. i’m using this year to start evolving my whole fashion style. aside from bags, i’ve never really browsed any clothing that’s on fab.com. i figure if i’m always seeing cool furniture and products i love, why not look for some cool things i could rock for the fall.
