Get Your Brain Back
Issue 49 | December 2018
BackgroundreMarkable is a new tablet that looks and feels like paper. With no email or social media functions it is designed to shut out digital distractions and allow the user to focus on her thoughts and her work. There is evidence that writing notes with a pen improves learning and aids memory retention in a way that typing on a keyboard does not. However, it will convert handwritten ideas into typed text to share. It also allows users to undo, erase and move their notes and then store them. Synched with the users laptop or desktop, the notes can then be emailed out far and wide. To give the look and feel of paper, reMarkable uses Canvas display. Rather than the luminous pixels of other tablets, it relies on black in particles, which make images and text gentle on the eye.
