Writing Instruments in the form of pens have been used since ancient Egypt, and even though we have entered the digital age, these methods will not be abandoned.
Instead, technology is utilized so that interactions between humans and content become more intuitive, for example through the touch screen to the implementation of the stylus with characteristics that are made to resemble real stationery.
Convinced that there are still many people who prefer paper over the screen, the UC Team is trying to combine the simplicity of reading and writing in books with easy access to digital content through a device called MobiScribe.
MobiScribe is an electronic notebook that allows you to write or draw ideas without sacrificing trees (softwood used in making paper).
MobiScribe has the appearance of an e-reader tablet, presenting a 6.8-inch monochromatic 265DPI monochromatic e-ink screen.
Not small but not too wide so it’s easy to carry. The device is supported by 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal memory which can be added with a 32GB microSD card.
That means he is ready to store thousands of e-books.
MobiScribe does indeed prioritize function rather than appearance. This digital book is also equipped with collision absorbent cover which also acts as a place to put the stylus.
Even though it looks simple, MobiScribe is equipped with a series of crucial technologies supporting reading and writing activities.
The tablet utilizes a screen made by WACOM that can detect 4096 levels of pressure (degree of pressure).
High sensitivity is promised to be able to meet the needs of even the most difficult artists to satisfy.
The panel has a capacitive character, allowing us to navigate the menu armed with fingers, then immediately ‘reject’ the touch of the palm when the stylus is being used.
As you may already know, e-paper screens have paper-like properties and basically, don’t emit light.
The surface is also not glossy so you are not disturbed by shadows and light reflection.
Even so, the UC Team understands there are times when we have to write / record in dim conditions.
To support this, they included lighting ‘front light‘ with adjustable brightness, color temperature, and contrast.
The stylus is also no less unique. Besides having a pencil-style profile and letting us draw different lines based on the hard or soft pressure, the back serves as an eraser.
The combination of small things ensures the MobiScribe user experience becomes more natural.
