Do you want to own a notebook that will last forever? Do you want to be always able to reuse your notebook and is thin enough to carry it with you anywhere you go? Well, this is what Rocketbook wants you to imagine, with Everlast. It has successfully campaigned on Kickstarter and has finally arrived on my doorsteps.
Truthfully, there isn’t much to review about. There’s nothing fanciful about the notebook. It comes with ring-bind which is actually not my favorite. Anyway, the magic about this notebook is the pages. It is made of Polyester composite and it water resistant. Each page has a unique QR code and seven symbols.
Because of the paper-like material, you can write on it (with Frixion pen) and then erases off the content with just water. Basically, it feels like paper (without any glossiness) when you writes on it. However, it takes a few seconds for the ink to dry. So, you need to wait for a while before flipping to the next page or tries to change or erase some words above your writing.
The Kickstarter campaign I supported comes with an Executive-size Everlast notebook and a Pilot Frixion black pen. It cost USD47 (USD34 for the notebook and USD13 for shipping). That is very steep for a 36 pages notebook.
Here is my review on it.
Want to give it a try to see how good is the app? You can actually download the template for the notebook and the app to give it a go.
Overall, I think the notebook is slightly overpriced. I love the idea of digitizing the content and reusing it over and over again. Not sure if the pages will last as long as what Rocketbook claims (over a thousand times of writing and rewriting).
A final note. The content on Everlast should be wiped off within a month to avoid staining the material. If you need more information, check out the FAQ page.
