Creative company Adobe and luxury stationary maker Moleskine have collaborated and partnered up to launch an analog-to-digital notebook aimed at artists and designers. The notebook is called Moleskine Paper Tablet – Creative Cloud Connected. It enables creatives to sketch on paper while their illustration is simultaneously being converted into a digital drawing. Even though this is a niche device, this will easily modify a user’s workflow while digitizing their works and allowing them to use editing software on the go.
There have been digital notepads before by Royale RoWrite and iSkn Slate, but this is the first digital notebook that has been backed up both a big-name tech company and a papermaker. This partnership has the potential to attract people who are a regular user of Adobe’s creative cloud and artists. Illustrators like Paul Heaston, David Morales, and many more cultivate large online followings due to their work on Moleskine notebooks.
The Moleskine paper can be found online at a price of just $35 but it needs a special pen to work which costs $179 alone.
The paper tablet looks like a normal journal, only it digitizes your sketches and illustrations. Moleskine has described their product as an experience which will provide you with the freedom to pen down your ideas on paper, teamed with all the advantages of digital creativity.
The notebook has distinctively rounded pages with each page being embedded with encoded technology which enables the smartpen to know its exact location on the paper. The paper is of thicker quality than the rest of Moleskine notebooks and is more resistant as well. The 100 g/paper provides the users with a perfect surface for writing and sketching.
In a nutshell, the Moleskine Paper Tablet allows the users to smoothly digitize, edit, organize and share handwritten notes and sketches made on the move.
