About this project

The Noteboard's an absurdly cheap, incredibly portable, durable, and versatile dry-erase board. It's fun and handy for everyone -- with the added bonus of being especially useful for those with communication disabilities or for whom paper's scarce.

Why is it awesome?

  • It's water-resistant, eco-friendly, and infinitely-rewritable
  • Selling a Noteboard for $10 allows another Noteboard to be donated
  • It can be used for writing, sketching, designing, storyboarding, presenting, signs, as a wall calendar, and an infinite number of other possibilities, and you can take it anywhere
  • Unlike an iPad or tablet, if you sit on this, soak it in Vanilla Coke, or have it stolen, you won't have lost several hundred bucks
  • It folds up from 35" x 15" to 5" x 3"

Why do you care?

For every penny a Noteboard costs, it has about a dozen uses. It can be developed in hundreds of different directions -- as a brandable piece of merchandise that companies and sports teams can sell, or as a portable reflector for photographers, as a sign for hitchhikers in a pinch, and so on.

Who'll use it?

  • Writers
  • Tabletop gamers
  • Sports fans
  • Designers
  • Artists
  • Business people
  • Restless kids on long trips

Where does your investment go?

To the cost of manufacturing, assembling, packaging, and shipping 50,000 Noteboards.

Will you be shipping internationally?

Yes.
