Rocketbook Wave: Cloud Connected Microwavable Notebook

$574,699

10,992

The way you take notes is about to change.

The Rocketbook Wave provides the freedom of a traditional pen and paper notebook, while instantly blasting your notes into the cloud using your smartphone. 

When you use Pilot FriXion pens with the Wave notebook, you can erase your notes using your microwave oven and reuse your notebook.

Go ahead and re-read that last part. 

REWARDS

Prior to shipping, we will send you a survey, so you can select which size(s) you want. Feel free to mix and match if you purchase multiple Waves.

 ROCKETBOOK WAVE DETAILS:

        

MACHINE VISION

The Rocketbook System is the combination of a special notebook and a free mobile app. Write notes and create designs in your notebook with a pen. Then, using patent-pending image capture technology, the Rocketbook app accurately and quickly captures and sends your notes to pre-configured cloud services.

SEVEN SYMBOLS

The seven symbols at the bottom of each page are the magic “buttons” behind the Rocketbook’s quick and easy cloud organization. You assign each icon to the destination of your choice, any folder inside Dropbox, Evernote, Google Docs, OneNote or your email address. When you mark that icon on your page, the Rocketbook app automatically files your notes in the right place.

       

IMAGE PROCESSING

In an instant, the Rocketbook app crops and enhances each page so your digital notes are more crisp and vibrant than the real thing.

LET FREEDOM DING!

With your notes stored safely in the cloud, and when you use Pilot Frixion pens, you can erase your Wave using your microwave oven.

Pilot Frixion pens use a special “thermochromic” ink which becomes clear under heat. And the Wave is specially designed to be microwave safe. So when your notebook is filled, you can use your microwave oven to heat the Wave and turn all of your notes clear in just a few minutes.

Our specially designed thermal logo on the cover tells you when your Rocketbook is done. Simply microwave both sides with a mug of water until the logo turns from blue to white. It will return to blue when cool.

INTELLIGENT PAGES

Each page of your Rocketbook Wave contains a special QR code which tells the Rocketbook app the page number of each scan. That means no matter how or when you scan your Wave, we can always get your notes in the right order.

Each page also has a narrow dark border surrounding it. The border allows the Rocketbook app to find your page quickly in any environment or background.

DOT GRID+

The pages all feature a unique dot grid pattern that is perfect for both text notes, sketches and diagrams.

NO NOTEBOOK? NO PROBLEM.

MAXIMIZING WAVE REUSE

Frixion ink turns clear with heat, but it doesn’t completely evaporate. This means in some lighting, old notes will appear as faint “ghost” images. Fortunately, Frixion pens continue to write perfectly over clear ink and our proprietary machine vision won’t be disturbed by old notes.

Although the book will “work” indefinitely, much like other reusable items the number of reuses you will get depends on a number of factors. These include your note density, pen type, pen pressure, typical lighting and a general tolerance of ghosts. Generally users can expect 5-10 reuses.

Risks and challenges

We have shipped over 30,000 Rocketbooks from an earlier campaign which means we have learned a tremendous amount about material procurement, printing processes, and the logistics that go in to mass fulfillment.

We are running this Kickstarter to fund the next batch of Rocketbook Waves which requires substantial volumes for large commercial print jobs. This campaign will also help us raise the funds to invest even more in the Rocketbook apps, so we can offer Box, Slack and iCloud integrations plus further enhancements to the technology and experience.

This will be our second production of the Rocketbook Wave units at scale, so we have a handle on what issues to anticipate and plan for. As we rely on several vendors, printers, and fulfillment partners we know that hiccups can occur. Therefore, we intentionally built in extra time to our schedule to absorb hiccups and prevent delays.
