Ana­logue and dig­i­tal merge on aug­mented paper

No formatting con­straints, no worry about low bat­tery power, the sat­is­fy­ing feel of nib on sur­face, doodling at will – writ­ing on paper is lib­er­at­ing, any way you look at it. But it’s hard to solely rely on the ana­logue when al­most all com­mu­ni­ca­tion is based in the dig­i­tal sphere.

That’s where Mont­blanc’s Aug­mented Paper comes in. The set con­sists of a mod­i­fied Star­walker pen, note­book and elec­tronic pad con­cealed in a hand­some leather folder. To­gether, the trio utilises elec­tro­mag­netic res­o­nance to digi­tise hand­writ­ing or sketches on the page. From here, writ­ers can tag and edit their notes via an ac­com­pa­ny­ing Mont­blanc app. Unlike a tra­di­tional note­book, it’s easy to search th­ese vir­tual notes for spe­cific phrases or fig­ures. Per­fect for Lud­dites who seek the con­ve­nience of dig­i­tal text, but aren’t ready to re­lin­quish the ro­mance of pen­man­ship.
