The Precision Watches and Jewelry Review
In about $650, you get a smart journal, a pen from the Montblanc’s StarWalker collection, and a chic and stylish leather envelope from the company’s Urban Spirit Range – a pretty sweet deal considering the company’s general prices.
Both the notebook and the pen use’s the Wacom’s EMR to make your actual handwriting digital. It does so by generating a weak electromagnetic field via the envelope and using it to pick out the movement of the tip of the pen. But the downside is that only what you write on the pad itself can be digitalized –and the pad only has about a 100 pages which are sure to run out quick
The Montblanc Augmented Paper recognizes writing in up to twelve languages, categorizes your notes accordingly and forwards them to your email, or online storage services like Dropbox –whatsoever.
The functionality is pretty familiar to apps like Evernote, and Moleskin, but with Montblanc, things retain the non-digital luxurious and elegant touch. For the first time users, t is nothing short of magic because of how fast and accurate it is.
A power button at the top switches the notebook on, and there is a USB port to charge it at the bottom. On the sides, there is a transfer via a Bluetooth option and a couple of LEDs that notify you of the steps of the transfer.
Montblanc is the most known for its high-end pens, watches, and leather goods –and this augmented paper is right up to its alley of specialization.
If you are looking for a luxury item to add a little extra something to your stationery items, then there is nothing better than a StarWalker Pen, an Italian leather notebook made in Florence and some magic waiting to happen at the snap of a finger.
