New Demo Video Teases the Return of the NoteSlate Writing Tablet
Remember the Noteslate?
This was an epaper writing tablet which first appeared in early 2011, with amazing product renders and a shocking $99 retail price, only to be revealed 6 months later as a figment of its developer’s imagination (they didn’t even have vaporware, much less a prototype).
That writing slate is back again today, over 3 years after it initially appeared. It seems someone (who may or may not have been behind the earlier vaporware) has posted a demo video on Youtube.
The video shows someone’s hand writing on an epaper screen. There aren’t any details on the screen tech, or the device, but the video was uploaded from an account named Noteslate.
Is this the Noteslate writing tablet we were promised 3 years ago? I can’t tell, but I do know that the old Noteslate website has been updated with this demo video on the front page.
TBH, I can’t even say for sure which epaper screen tech we’re looking at. (I’ve put out a few queries, but I haven’t heard back yet.) Does this look like an E-ink screen to you?
