Rocketbook Smart Notebook – A Notebook for the Future

Rocketbook - A Notebook for the Future

I first found out about the Rocketbook while touring a school as part of my job a couple of years ago. At the time, there was just one kind of Rocketbook called the Wave. The school provided each student with their own Rocketbook for taking notes in their classes. I was intrigued and decided to order one and see what it was all about.

How the Rocketbook Smart Notebook Works

One great thing about most of the Rocketbook line of notebooks is that they are reusable. To make them reusable, you must use Pilot Erasable FriXion Pens. (Affiliate Link) The first Rocketbook I purchased was the Rocketbook Wave. It comes with one Pilot FriXion pen included. Once you fill up the Wave Notebook, you put the notebook in the microwave with a half cup of water and run the microwave for 30 seconds. The moist heat erases the ink so the notebook can be used again. The Rocketbook Wave can be erased and reused up to 5 times.

The Rocketbook Everlast is the newest Rocketbook in the line. The Everlast is reported to be endlessly reusable. The pages are made of a synthetic blend of polyester. You must use Pilot FriXion pens (Affiliate Link) on these as well. Within about 10-15 seconds, the ink dries and becomes bonded to the paper. To erase the page, wipe it with a moist towel and dry it thoroughly. The Rocketbook Everlast comes with one FriXion pen and one small microfiber cloth.

The Rocketbook is not only reusable but also a smart notebook. The part that makes it a smart notebook is the companion app that you use in conjunction with the notebook. The Rocketbook App is available in both the Apple App Store and Google Play. You use the app to snap a picture or make a scan of your notes that are then sent to specific locations in cloud services that you already use.

Supported Services

There are seven symbols at the bottom of each page in the notebook. Using the app, you can connect each symbol to a folder or subfolder in any of the supported online services. After writing your notes, you mark the corresponding symbols at the bottom of the page to send the notes to the right destination when you scan the page with the app. Supported services include:

  • Google Drive
  • Dropbox
  • box
  • slack
  • Email
  • OneNote
  • Evernote
  • iCloud
  • iMessage
  • OneDrive
  • NEW – Trello

Besides sending a scanned image of your notes to your selected cloud destination, you can also set it up in the app to send your notes to be transcribed via email. You just have to turn the feature on in the settings. Turn on Handwriting Recognition OCR to use email transcription. You can also turn on Smart Search to give you the capability to search your handwritten text.

Ideas for Using the Rocketbook

There are so many great ways to use the Rocketbook Smart Notebook. Students could set up folders for each subject in a cloud service and then assign each of the seven symbols to one of the subject folders in the Rocketbook app. I use my Rocketbook for a consignment business I help run. I have each of the symbols set up to send to various drive folders and email addresses so that meeting notes can go out to the appropriate people.
