First Look: Boogie Board Sync: An erasable LCD tablet with Bluetooth

1:37 /

The Boogie Board Sync can be fun for kids and useful for adults. Also, It is now Bluetooth enabled for wireless syncing and is compatible with IOS and Android.

I am Scott Stein with CNET and maybe you fantasize about having a pad that can connect to your iPad or to your computer and save everything that you sketch on it. The Boogie Board Sync is that device. It's $99 and it's coming at the end of the month. Boogie Board is actually made a bunch of erasable LCD tablets for kids and families that are already out there. The difference with Sync is that its Bluetooth connected as you can connect this again to your tablet or computer and use it as a virtual whiteboard. You could have it save hundreds of sketches directly to this device and then it'll sync over to your iOS device or Android or whatever or what have you, and output them as image files that you can actually import later on, send out as birthday cards or just keep on file. You could also connect it to Evernote via the app so you can save what those sketches are if you're writing a to-do list or you decide drawing pictures of a [unk] tops like I do. The Boogie Board is very lightweight and that multi-erase LCD screen doesn't require any special tech here so it's a little pressure sensitive and you can draw in here and it's fun and it feels a little more like a futuristic extra sketch but one that is instantly transmitting right over here as I'm writing on this. Pretty cool and it feels like something that's a hybrid between a kid would like but an adult would use too and would find a way to stick around to your home could be a fun little stocking stuff or it is a $100 but it's a really interesting tool and a nice alternative to other types of stylist technologies that you may have seen. I'm Scott Stein and that's a quick look at the Boogie Board Sync coming out soon.
