Every year at CES we see a few fun little products like the Boogie Board JOT eWriter tablet. Over the past few years the tablet has seen small improvements but remains the same. A simple LCD eWriter tablet that makes note taking, drawing, and more all digital and even kid friendly on a small device.
The Boogie Board remains about the same as it has over the years with the new JOT 8.5 announced this week at CES, only it’s thinner, lighter, and the LCD display is now 50% brighter for the best experience yet.
Replace your physical notepad with a Boogie Board for quick notes, and one tap of the clear button up top erases everything. So make sure you’re ready to clear it, or are done drawing pictures. Read on for more details about the new JOT 8.5 revealed this week.
The Boogie Board is essentially a digital or electronic Notepad for anyone from kids to college students looking for an easy and quick way to take notes. Some of the noteworthy specs are the fact that it lasts for up to 7 years without ever needing a recharge, and that’s with the estimate of 50 “wipes” of the screen per day. Meaning you’ll get plenty of usage out of it, and never need to replace the battery for the life of your Boogie Board tablet.
Offered in multiple sizes and even a SNYC option with WiFi, there’s one for everyone but the JOT 8.5 is the most popular. Simply because it’s not too big or too small, lightweight, portable, and even kid friendly.
Users can write on a Boogie Board with the included stylus, or even a finger to quickly take notes or draw images. Whether it be for work, play, or to keep the kinds entertained this small little device is one worth getting. This year the new and improved Boogie Board JOT 8.5 with a 50% brighter screen is set to hit the market at $29.99, and will be available in time for back to school shoppers.
Above, new to CES 2015, is an all new translucent LCD display that offers everything the Boogie Board has for years, only on a see-through canvas. This is great for drawing portraits or copying a subject, and great for kids too.
Boogie Board has been a neat little tool and company we’ve seen at CES for years, and the product doesn’t need to change too much to continue flying on shelves. Each year back to school shoppers buy it for the simplicity, and that’s set to continue with the new JOT 8.5 shown above. More details on both models will be available in the coming weeks and months.
