Will Digital Handwriting Mark The End Of Paper?
Are you ready to give up using paper? The new tablet will be the key to ending our reliance on paper.
Paper as a medium has many benefits. It is recognized across the world, easy to get and to use and on top of that it is cheap. However, there are some drawbacks as well. It is heavy, it takes up a lot of space, and it can easily tear and rip. On top of that, there is an environmental impact that must be addressed as well, as paper takes trees to produce. A tablet, on the other hand, is light and easy to carry with you and doesn’t come with the environmental impact on our trees as paper does. The question is, will consumers adopt a paperless lifestyle?
The handwriting tablet is very minimalist in its design. It is lightweight and thin and designed to be used as a paper replacement and not much else. As such, it will only open documents, ebooks and PDF files and it will allow you to make notes on all of them.
Think about the benefits. Your college students no longer have to lug around a big notebook or folders full of paper. Instead, they have one lightweight device that allows them to write and take notes as much as they need to. Think about the traveler for business? You won’t need that organizer in order to jot down notes while you are in your business meeting. All you will need is this tablet. Really it’s not a bad idea at all.
This isn’t the first attempt of getting rid of paper, but it definitely is a new spin on it and one that I can see has many real world applications.
