The Slate is a screenless writing board to which you can attach regular paper and draw using the pen or pencil of your choice. All you have to do is slide a magnetic ring on your drawing instrument and start drawing, the ring will communicate with the board and record what you’re doing digitally. The board connects to your tablet or phone using the Imagink app. When you’re finished with your notes or drawing, you can export the finished page from the Imagink app in a number of standard file formats. The Slate’s two favourable features of using any type of paper (or even a notebook) and the pen of your choice sets it apart from competing technologies that require you to using compatible pens or notebooks.
