We seemed to have missed any previous coverage of the Boogie Board, but it is now available for order from Amazon and other retailers. What is it? Well, at first glance it looks like a chalkboard. But it is a slate device that you can write on with the included stylus or your finger. Think of it as a chalk white board as you can’t save what you scribble. Once you’re done with what’s on the screen you hit a button and erase the screen. It retails for $35. It has a non-user replaceable battery but there is a free replacement program available. The manufacturer says you can clear the board 50,000 times in the life of the battery. They predict that’s at least a year’s worth of use.
From what I’m reading on this, it is as thin as a piece of gum (not a stick of gum, but the Trident style gum pieces), and weighs in at 4.2 ounces. Anybody tried this out?
