Rocketboard: A New Digital Universe For Old Whiteboards
Instantly turn your whiteboard into a smartboard with four magical stickers from the future!
This project will only be funded if it reaches its goal by Fri, February 1 2019 2:35 PM UTC +00:00.
Rocketboard allows you to capture, organize and broadcast important notes, diagrams, and big ideas on any whiteboard or wall surface in real-time. No need for expensive new hardware and software. Just four restickable "beacons" for any sized surface and one futuristic smartphone app that connects with many of the popular cloud services you already use!
Place the four restickable Rocketboard quadra-triangles in each corner of any size whiteboard, and start writing the way you normally would. Then download the free Rocketbook app. When you scan your whiteboard with the app, the space aged machine vision will “see” the Rocketboard beacons and quickly capture your whiteboard from any angle.
The Rocketboard beacons can modernize any size whiteboard you have hanging around. If your surface area is small, and every inch of writing space counts, simply cut the beacons to size and the app will still capture your work! The majority of whiteboards (over 3 feet wide or high) will work great without trimming!
The Rocketbook app will instantly adjust and visually enhance your scans so the digital version is light years ahead of the real thing.
The Rocketbook app allows you to assign 7 shortcut symbols to "destinations" in the cloud which could be any folder inside Dropbox, Evernote, Google Docs, your email address, and many other popular services.
Set up the app to instantly beam your notes, diagrams, and big ideas. And save precious time by transcribing your handwriting with powerful optical character recognition (OCR) technology.
For crucial missions with a scattered crew, the app allows you to stream your Rocketboard in real-time. Switch to “Broadcast” mode, share the unique URL and get ready to collaborate with your team anywhere in the world. Your private, real-time page is updated every time you scan your Rocketboard. Or simply prop your phone facing your Rocketboard and set the app to auto-scan every 5 seconds.
Rocketboard is made with space aged micro-suction technology that is specially designed to stick to whiteboard surfaces. This synthetic and durable material acts like millions of microscopic suction cups that cling to your whiteboard and won't deteriorate over time like other sticky adhesives. The beacons can even be cleaned to ensure a quality bond with each use!
The Rocketbook app can transcribe your handwriting with OCR or “Optical Character Recognition” technology. Transcription allows you to send a digital text version of your Rocketboard, or even search through all of your Rocketboards with keywords and phrases. You can even auto-name your files by placing two hashtags ‘#’ on either side of a title like ##THIS TITLE##. Traditional surfaces will never be the same!

Risks and challenges
This is our fifth crowdfunding campaign, and experience is everything. We delivered on our very first campaign late, which was painful experience, but we learned a ton. Since then, we've delivered early on every one. We make conservative estimates and get our numbers and partners straight ahead of time.
With that said, like with any project, there is risk in bringing a new product into the world. It is possible that our reliance on supplier and manufacturing vendors could result in unforeseen delays.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
