New Year’s Resolution No. 1: Never Lose A Good Idea Again

How often have you forgotten that important note or just lost it in the clutter? Help is here. Wacom’s new small version of the Bamboo Folio smartpad helps thinkers and doers capture, shape, share and organize ideas on the go.
“Our Bamboo smart pads are made to naturally fit into any workflow, fusing the ease of writing naturally on pen and paper with digital technology to transform thoughts into ideas,” said Mike Gay, senior vice president for Wacom’s Consumer Business Unit. “The small Bamboo Folio provides an on-the-go solution for those that are looking to organize and protect their valuable ideas as they bring them from paper to the cloud — whether that’s at home, at school, or at work.”

Form meets function for on-the-go note-taking & idea generating

The new small Bamboo Folio allows users to turn their handwritten notes or sketches into digital files with a simple push of a button. It features the same Wacom technology as the recently launched Bamboo Slate and large Folio. The Wacom Inkspace app and integrated cloud services offer easy editing and access from anywhere.

The small Bamboo Folio provides another added benefit for those looking to easily and safely transport their notes and ideas. The textured gray cover keeps everything in place and provides stylish protection for any half-letter-size (A5) paper.

It’s ideal for on-the-go note takers and idea creators — whether it’s the business traveler that needs a professional notepad to capture and organize meeting notes and ideas; students that jot down and pack their notes from class to study sessions to home; or teachers that need to record and protect their valuable lesson plans.

Get and stay organized

The Bamboo smart pads provide peace of mind so you never have to worry about losing a good idea again. Store and organize notes in Wacom Inkspace or easily add them to Dropbox, Evernote, or OneNote from a smartphone. Files can also be saved locally (up to 100 pages) on the Bamboo Folio. Both versions of the Bamboo Folio include an integrated cover with extra slots for business cards and other documents for added organization.

Once handwritten notes are converted to digital files, users can download the Bamboo Paper app to easily highlight notes to review with classmates or add annotations to a presentation. With a paid subscription to Wacom Inkspace Plus, users can also convert images to vector files and collaborate in real-time mode, so friends and colleagues can watch ideas come to life remotely as they are drawn on paper.

New Year, New You: Boost Productivity
