Recently I was scrolling down my Facebook feed and came across something that caught my eye. It was one of those sponsored posts that I will admit I click on about 50% of the time.
This as mentioned how the product in question raised over a million dollars on Indigogo … and as a business owner that is something that will almost always catch my eye.
So I decided to watch the ad post entitled “People are going CRAZY about this MAGIC notebook…”
Pretty catchy right?
So I dive in and take a look and sure as shit I decide pretty quickly that I want one. It is called the Rocketbook Wave. I couldn't find the size that I wanted on their site so I decided to check Amazon and see if they had it. Sure enough they did! (I mean really though is there anything they don't carry at this point?)
I placed my order, got my 2 day free shipping thanks to my Prime membership – which yes I shamelessly plug because I love it so much! (The money I save in shipping just at Christmas time alone pretty much pays for my membership fees twice over.)
And then I sit back and impatiently wait for my package….
Now I'm sure by now you are asking “What the hell is so special about this notebook?”
What makes this notebook so amazing is that you can fill up the notebook with notes, automatically upload your notes to the cloud storage of your choice – to the FOLDER or FILE of your choice and then when it's full and you have no more room for your notes … you can make them all disappear!
No seriously! You can! Like magic. Except it isn't magic, it's some sciency thing that I don't understand at all but it is REALLY cool.
Now I will admit that when I first ordered it, I was really skeptical – I mean magically erasing notebook… I'm not so sure I totally buy it. But I figured – what the hell, I'm going to try it anyway.
The notebook arrived a couple days later and I was ready to try this bad boy out. Now it is worth mentioning that with the Rocketbook notebook you do have to use specific types of pens. The Pilot FriXion ball pens are the ones that will work with this notebook. Which is fine with me as I already loved these pens. I use them all the time because they are completely erasable and I NEED to have that feature in a pen considering how often I change my mind.
They are good quality pens AND they come in different colors so that is always a plus for me too. If a pen doesn't have a purple option I won't use it.
Anyway, the very first thing I did was download the app for the notebook to my phone and then set up the shortcuts of where I wanted my notes to go. Here's a link on how that all works and how to set it up.
I uploaded the note to my google drive folder that I had set up for the app. Here is what that image looked like…
(It does need to be said that I did upload this as an image in my excitement to get started, you DO have the option of uploading them as pdf documents as well)
Yes, I know it's not exactly Shakespeare but it did what I wanted it to do. So I was pretty happy…
The next test was going to be would the note magically disappear? Time to test it.
Now, in order for this notebook to do it magical ju ju to make the ink disappear you have to microwave it. Yep, you heard that right – microwave it. (This is the part that I wasn't quite sure about.)
But my daughter and I tried it using the directions we found here and you can check out the video below to see the results:
I will say that if you look very closely at the page you can still see the ghost of the notes that were there before. However, those will be a distant memory once you fill the page up with all new doodles and notes.
All in all I really dig this notebook!!
