Save your doodle!

Scribbling down your ideas, lists, notes, thoughts and doodles on a touch-sensitive tablet is a great idea. Not only does it look seriously high-tech, it saves all that balled-up environmentally unfriendly paper. But until recently, paper still came out on top because you could save your pages and pages of notes and check back through them later. Well not for long! Enter, with an eco-friendly fanfare and serious tech press buzz, the next generation Boogie Board Rip.

Fumbling about for pens, pencils and pads of paper simply won’t do in this day and age, especially when it means you are destroying trees and laying waste to entire forests, Avatar-style.

Just like it’s predecessor, the Boogie Board Paperless LCD Tablet, it’s perfect for scribbling messages, writing to-do lists, sketching digital graffiti, doing sums and drawing up mad professor-ish master plans. But with one clear difference – you can now save up to 100 pages of it, and even transfer your work to a Mac or PC! But we’re getting ahead of ourselves.

This ludicrously lightweight, flexible electronic pad features a pressure-sensitive screen upon which you can write, doodle and sketch using the included stylus, your finger or anything else capable of applying the required pressure. The Boogie Board Rip is so responsive it can even conjure up lines of different thickness according to the pressure applied – just like paper and pen. Think of it as a pimped-up Etch-a-Sketch with a high-tech twist. When you need to erase your handiwork simply press the button, and it’s gone!

But what if you want to save your work? Just hit the thoroughly pressable green button and it’ll archive your data for as long as you need it. The next time you’re near your Mac or PC just connect the micro USB cable and you’ll be able to pull off all the data to the computer. Clever, eh?

We can almost hear the trees breathing a sigh of relief. Of course you could always continue scrawling your musings via quaint old paper and pen, but as a Firebox-perusing gadgeteer we expect so much more from you. Write on!

As others have experienced, this doesn't always save what you note down. Several times I've come away from a meeting with notes only to find blank or missed sections. Don't rely on it to take notes, it just doesn't work reliably. I've now reverted to an Android tablet and EverNote - works every time without fail.

I've just received the smallest, least expensive boogie board yesterday and already can't imagine what I did without the convenience. It's great for making sketches to use for paintings and ink drawings and story ideas. Not sure I'll go to the one that saves, since I can take a phone pic and send it to myself, but I'm curious about the rechargeable battery. Does this allow more uses of the erase button? I think I may give this one to my sister and get the 10. 5 for myself, but the small size definitely is an easy traveler. I like Firebox a lot, not sure how I found it, but am definitely glad. Thanks!

This is a brilliant gadget. I waste so much paper! Whether taking notes at meetings or shopping lists I am a doodler. I doodle all over the pages, can't help it. My boogie rip lets me do this and save my work all in one place, no loose bits of paper or loads of notebooks and then after saving them can erase them, no bin bags full of paper! I can easily find my notes and type them up minus the doodles! I haven't had the problem of having to press hard and I find my writing looks better. It's worth the money to me as it is just what I needed. A bit disappointed that it went on sale so soon after it's launch as I asked for it for Christmas and it was more expensive.

Firebox says: Hi Daniel, sorry to hear you found your Boogie Board a little disappointing. Drop us an email with your order details ( and we'll see what we can do.
Well its seems like a good idea and had high expectations, but in operation it is not very effective, You pay 3 times more for a save function and are told how you can save all your dodles and ideas, but when you look at the pdf files you will be dissapointed, The problem is how hard you need to press to get your sketch to save, hard enough that you end up with thick lines on the screen when sketching or writing, the instructions give you an indication of different thickness lines, wont happen this thing only saves in one line thickness. Expect to have half you sketch missing because you didnt press down hard on the surface. High expectations 'yes' Potential to be a good product 'yes' Expensive 'yes' Does what it says on the box 'no'.
