A different kind of tablet. Boogie Board adds save function.

Techstination feature for Friday, November 11, 2011

A different kind of tablet.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.   The Boogie Board from Improv Electronics is an LCD writing tablet that is a greener way to keep shopping lists and the like.   The problem , until now, has been that once you press a button to clear the screen,  what you had written on the Boogie Board was gone forever.   But now the company is out with the Boogie Board Rip, which adds memory and the ability to download notes to a PC.   CEO Dr. Albert Green….

“I’d go back to my computer, I could save a bunch of sheets, a few hundred sheets, plug it in, go to my computer, drag it off as a PDF file.   So it’s kind of a Boogie Board on steroids but it has the same features of easy to use, writes just like paper, simple.”

The Boogie Board Rip sells for about a hundred thirty dollars.   The original Boogie Board, without the ability to save what you’ve written, is available for under forty dollars.    There’s more info at   You can find us at   I’m Fred Fishkin.
