Remember the days of stocking up on notebooks so you were all set for going back to school after being out all summer long? Well this Rocketbook Wave prevents the need for a stack of notebooks. You can simply get by with just one — a traditional-style notebook with a modern twist that makes a great gift for your favorite school student.

Anything you write on this notebook’s pages can be transferred into the cloud using nothing more than your smartphone and Rocketbook Wave app. The notebook also features microwavable pages that clean themselves, allowing you to use the device over and over again.

From its appearance, the stylish notebook looks very much like any other pad of paper you might buy at an office supply store. However, once you have completed a page of notes, you can use your smartphone and the Rocket Book App to take a scan of your page. Depending on which symbol you have selected at the bottom of the page, the app will send the scan directly to a destination of your choice, whether that’s the iCloud, Google Docs, Evernote or your email. You can choose up to 7 different destinations using the on-page destination indicators.
