The new Boogie Board from Improv Electronics is the first ever LCD writing tablet with an environmentally friendly edge. The Boogie Board tablet is the tree-friendly electronic alternative to paper, pencils, and pens. With it, users of all ages will truly say goodbye to paper forever – and it’s just as easy to use. Simply press on the surface with the included stylus or other suitable writing instrument (even your finger) to create an image, and then erase with the push of a button.
With the Boogie Board tablet, you’ll never be without a memo pad again. No pen or pencil, no problem! Keep one by the home phone and by your computer at work to jot down memos, make to do lists, leave messages for others, capture your next big idea, and more. Keep one in your car, and you’ll never be caught again looking for a piece of paper and pen to write important to-do’s to get from the grocery store on the way home.
But the Boogie Board tablet is more than just a memo pad. Students will find it’s the perfect tool for practicing handwriting/arithmetic, drawing pictures and playing games (especially young and developmentally challenged students). If you’re a coach, you can even use the Boogie Board tablet to diagram the winning play. Say goodbye to dry erase boards with smelly, dried up markers. .
This tablet is ultra thin at just 1/8 of an inch thick, and measures 8.8 x 5.6 inches, just about as big as a letter size paper. The Boogie Board is handy enough to bring along anywhere. It includes a stylus to use for writing on the Boogie Board, but just about any non-marking and non-scratching writing implement will do. The LCD display is pressure sensitive and would display line thickness depending on the amount of pressure applied.
You no longer have to look for organic paper to write notes into with the Boogie Board around. Think of how many trees can be saved if more people use this unique tablet. MSRP around $30. (www.myboogieboard.com)
