This project will only be funded if it reaches its goal by Mon, October 1 2018 3:59 AM UTC +00:00.
A peel and stick whiteboard, powered by the futuristic Rocketbook app. Unleash your creativity with the utility of the cloud.
The Think Board X functions like a traditional whiteboard, but connects to the power of digital with the Rocketbook mobile app. That means before you erase your notes, they can be scanned to online destinations like Google Drive, Dropbox, and Evernote — perfectly organized. Now, your ideas can live forever, even after they are erased!
- Organize your quick notes and tasks
- Share brainstorms and updates with your team
- Capture your next million dollar idea
The Think Board X works with Rocketbook's cloud organization system. Using the Rocketbook app, you assign 7 shortcut “symbols” to a destination of your choice.
- Save: Store files and documents to any folder in Dropbox, Google Drive, OneNote, OneDrive, Box, or Evernote.
- Execute: Send files straight to Trello, Slack, or email.
After you have completed scanning, simply select the destination symbol(s) you would like to send your notes. The Rocketbook app instantly files your notes in the right place. Your notes, ideas and to-do lists will be more organized than ever before!
*After the campaign ends you will receive a Backerkit survey where you will have an opportunity to make additions to your order and confirm your shipping address.
The Think Board X naturally works best on walls and desks, but also works great on other fun surfaces such as: windows, refrigerators, tables, laptops, binders, notebooks, mirrors, chalkboards, whiteboards, old whiteboards, or whiteboard paint.
Unlike traditional whiteboards, the Think Board X erases clean every time because it is built with a proprietary polyester composite that is made to last. Our favorite markers are Expo Low Odor, but feel free to use any other dry erase markers found online or in-stores.
Whether you put your Think Board X on painted drywall, a wooden desk, or a stainless steel refrigerator, our micro-bead adhesive is specifically designed to not damage your surface or leave any residue behind.
The magic of the Rocketbook System starts after you write on your Think Board X. Fire up the app and use the patent-pending image scan-and-enhance technology to accurately and quickly capture all of your notes and brainstorms. Then, beam them all to you favorite cloud services!
With optical character recognition (OCR) you can name your scans by adding double hashtags on each side of your title on the Think Board X. Then scan the page to transcribe the text between the double hashtags. (ex: ## Team Meeting ## will automatically label your scan to "Team Meeting")
Whether analyzing trends in your personal habits, tracking company goals, or creating alternative methods for student assessments, the Think Board X will allow you to review incremental change and stay on track!
In an instant, the Rocketbook app crops and enhances each page so your digital notes are more crisp and vibrant than the real thing.
Step 1: Find smooth surface and wipe it clean of any dust
(For super smooth surfaces like glass, mist the surface with water prior to installing to ensure a bubble-free install)
Step 2: Peel Think Board X off of the liner with the help of a friend
Step 3: Stick to surface and smooth into place with a microfiber cloth (included)
"It all started in my Babson College dorm room. I needed a space to write down business ideas and stay organized from week to week. However, I couldn't drill holes into the wall to set up a massive whiteboard or paint my walls with whiteboard paint. That's when Think Board was born - a dry erase film that was easy to install and remove, looked beautiful, and worked like a charm. I stuck the first version of our product to my dorm room wall to write down OTHER business ideas. After about 50 or more bad ideas, enough friends had come into my room saying "Hanson, your other ideas aren't that great... but THIS thing... this is cool. Where can I get one?
.... we launched our first Kickstarter in 2014 and Think Board was born!" - Hanson Grant
Once shipped, you should receive a tracking number (please allow at least 24 hours for the tracking number to update). We plan to ship via USPS, DHL or UPS. For international customers, your order will be handled by USPS or DHL up to the entry of your country. Once your order enters your country your order will be handed off to your local post office for final delivery. International shipments will take 14-21 days. US orders will arrive within 5 business days.
If the package is returned because you're not at the location, entered in the wrong address, or moved locations without notifying us, and the package returns back to our warehouse, it will be the buyer's responsibility to pay the shipping fee to reship the order. Please keep an eye on the tracking number when it arrives in your email inbox.
We cannot mark as gift, this is illegal so we will not be able to do this. Our prices do not include VAT, GST or other country taxes. As many of you know, our terms of sale are CIF destination. This means that we pay all freight, but none of the duties or taxes. As we are shipping these products all over the world, it is impossible for us to build in the various duties, VAT and GST tax for each location through Kickstarter. Check out this handy tool, that can assist you in calculating duties. Remember to convert the US dollars to your local currency: http://www.dutycalculator.com/new-import-duty-and-tax-calculation As many of you know, Canadian Customs are very strict on products imported into Canada. All products over Canadian $25 are subject to duties and GST or Vat tax. Our invoices are in U.S. dollars, and is converted to Canadian dollars for purpose of duties and taxes, by Canadian Customs. Here's a link to find the CBSA offices where you can actually go and do the clearance, and save some significant dollars: http://www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/do-rb/services/lvs-efv-eng.html
This project is promoted by Jellop, the ad tech power behind the best Kickstarters with 500+ successful Kickstarter projects with over $235MM raised between them.
Risks and challenges
We have crowdfunded before and feel we have reduced our risks ahead of time by:
1) 16 months of R&D to determine the ideal combination of dry-erase coating formulation for ideal writing experience and greatest durability 2) Creating and socializing prototypes
3) Determining raw material providers
4) Finalize all quotes for our first production run funded by this Kickstarter campaign
5) We are already set up with a fulfillment provider who will handle the packing and shipping of rewards and who ships our other products every day. This is our second crowdfunding campaign, and experience is everything. We delivered on our first campaign on time and plan to do the same again. 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.
