microwavable notebook

rocketbook

My dear friend A sent me a moleskine notebook, which I love love love. She sent me a Washington DC one the year the conference was there too, so thoughtful.

I alternate between being neat and using notebooks and using a stack of scrap paper folded to A5 size. I’ve always been tempted by the moleskine evernote notebook but my attention has turned to rocketbook notebooks. The Wave was originally on indiegogo a couple of years ago, the idea is: write in the notebook, fill the pages, scan using their app and send to services like dropbox, microwave the notebook and start again.

Yes, microwave the notebook.

The trick is the pilot frixion pens. I’ve seen and used erasable pens before, so it’s nothing new. They usually come with a plastic knob at the end that is used like a rubber on mechanical pencils. I haven’t quite noticed that the ink disappears when microwaved. The Wave is $27 and $42 as a bundle with the pens.

There’s a newer notebook, the Everlast. Same principle but the pages can be wiped clean using a damp cloth. Still need to use those pilot frixion pens though. For the fun factor, I may get this for my niece. Sis doesn’t microwave so the Wave won’t be useful.
