Make transparrent sheets with the black border and QR Code so users can scan non rocketbook pages with the app
Physical Product Request
Quick scanning of Bills, Business Cards, Memos. Especially while traveling, being shown a document that can't be taken away, or quick sharing. Take this to another level: If the notebook had a clear template, and a decent way to stand up, I wonder if that template could be used as a filter between the camera and a whiteboard. Hand-held cards might be more manageable but would need a way to conveniently carry. The next step becomes content recognition (such as for business cards)
or you can just lay a check or bill on top of the PDF/Rocketbook page.
You can download a PDF Rocket book page. You could just print one of those on a transparency.
This is a great idea since one of the ways I plan to use my RocketBook is for as-building an areas that I'm going to remodel. Probably not what your initial use of the transparent sheet, but it would be a great use for the work I do. Most all of these areas I as-built are classified so the RocketBook is the ticket. It would be nice to print off a floor plan and put it under my transparent sheet to mark it up. It would be nice if we could purchase sheets to add to our everlast notebook.
Yes, but a page protector instead of a sheet. Put in a calendar, lined paper, specialized forms, staff paper for music...
Transparent sturdy plastic sheet with functionality buttons would also allow the app to be used with bit more advanced gif making, cartoons, misc notes and invoices, clippings from newspaper etc. I could see a ton of uses for that as my "paperless" life seems to still contain surprising amount of papers that come from somewhere else. Also, for drawing and designing purposes, that would allow using your prefered tools for drawing which - at least to me - is one essential part of sketching
Like what you're doing and have a problem I'm wondering if you can solve. Many students globally need to highlight in university textbooks. How about a clear plastic sheet (similar to overhead projector paper) which could be placed over a page of a textbook for highlights with the FriXion highlighter series without damaging the textbook. With the plastic sheet including highlights in place, take a photo with your app which would then be able to pull out the highlighted print text.
Like this idea a lot! I plan to convert all my paper files and tax documents, etc. to an electronic format using Rocketbook. Ideally, a firm backed page that allows a free document to be slipped underneath it and shows through a transparent film cover that includes the customizable QR code, sorting buttons, and black frame. Designing as a transparent film cover will allow the document to be held flat under the frame as well.
A page protector that you can put the pre made Rocketbook PDFs in and add to either your Wave or Everlast notebook.
+1 for a sheet you can lay on top of a book page or handout to annotate or highlight, then a merge functionality in the app that allows you to take two images, line them up and save or collapse as one image. Also ideal for stacking for animation as another user suggested.
I like this idea a lot too. As a scientist, I am constantly reading and highlighting papers, textbooks, technical reports, ect. It would be nice to make my notes and highlights without actually having to mark up my papers and books. This would also be a great feature for teachers and students! I approve this idea!
Yeah! this would be amazing for students who get paper materials passed out to them, they could do whatever is required, then create the backup on their device using Rocketbook so that they would never actually loose the materials!
I printed a transparency as proof of concept and it works great. I would love to see something like this as a sheet in the back of the Everlast. Some problems to look out for is that the size of the border cuts in on most printed pages and the transparency I used has one hell of a glare. This would be an excellent tool to add to the Everlast!
I thought this was my brilliant idea... Turns out someone has already thought of this...
Don't bother with a piece of plastic as transparency. Just make that one page in the back a frame with nothing in the middle. That way you have no issues with capturing what's 'through the frame' in the snap. (i.e. further thinking of this, you could use the more sturdy plastic used in the pocketbook cover since a 'picture frame page' with the normal plastic paper would be rathe flimsy...)
I like Bob's comment about a frame that wouldn't have any plastic on the inside. Another idea, make it slightly larger than and 8.5x11 with white behind the frame and code, so you could scan an entire 8.5x11 sheet inside of it, without risking any being cut off. Things like sign in sheets from meeting tend to have handwriting that goes beyond a standard margin.
Lol, good thing I finally searched the word "transparency" instead of continuing to suggest it on everyone else's ideas. Clearly I'm not that innovative. :DI'd love a transparent overlay. I could even save textures and graffiti that I see out in the 'wild'. I already take regular photos of them, but they just sit there in my phone instead of automatically uploading to my style inspiration folder. This would be genius.
Of course I can make a transparency out of the free templates.It is one more thing for me to carry around; things fall out of notebooks. I can certainly put something like a receipt on a sheet. If I have to take the time to cut up an 8.5x11 sheet to fit I am not likely to do it. So a clear template sheet with border, bar code, and symbols I could mark (still with frixion), that was bound into the book would be a great addition.
Wow! This is a great idea. When I saw the title I thought what's the point of clear plastic pages, then whamo. You folks have smart creative users. Crowd sourcing at it's best, and no troll comments to boot.
I like the idea of a transparent page with qr code and buttons so forms could be filled out and easily scanned. A sleeve or page protector type of product would increase reliability but a flat page would be more useful for bound volumes. UNLESS YOU PUT THE OPENING ON THE SIDE! That way it could be bigger than the page with the black border and QR code out of the way! That just occurred to me, sorry for all the shouting.
Transparent pages can be used to make animations and make really cool short movies or GIFs. Maybe the transparent pages should be removable to be able to draw an animation with 2 or 3 pages or buy pages separately and place them anywhere you want.
Transparent pages would be awesome for landscape/home design sketches.
A transparent sheet with a reusable header section where you could write a ##Title## would be the perfect improvement. Then you could scan all various types of paper (bills, letters, etc.) and have them store away with the right filename.
I, too, thought I was extremely innovative. My thought was to have a lightweight steel clipboard, with QR code and destination magnets. I hadn’t thought of the transparency. The one thing I like about the magnets would be that you could move them around to areas of a pre-printed document where there is not already writing. So many brilliant minds out there.
I've always been a notebook person, and I have plenty of notebooks that I would love to digitize using Rocketbook's app. A transparency would be a great way to help me bridge between my old paper notes and my new rocketbook. It would have been an amazing addition to bundle with my original Rocketbook purchase. A transparency would be an easy way for people to share their handwritten notes with me and for me to show them how awesome Rocketbook is . Gee, maybe I should try to diy this...?
This would be awesome! As some others have commented, it would help bridge the gap between our old notebooks and our new rocketbook, letting us digitize our old notes, and as a student, it would be invaluable to add the numerous handouts I get every day to my rocketbook. It would also let me highlight and anotate library books (a sin according to our librarian) without actually writing on them.
I think this can be simplified by adding the filing symbols in the app screen and that way any document can be scanned and filed directly... no frame and no page.
A transparent sheet would definitely work for me- I undertake family tree research on commission and need to take notes, fill out trees/ pedigrees/ family research sheets etc in various formats. Yes, I can scan these afterwards but the originals now need to be disposed of. To have a transparent overlay I can write on, digitise and then erase will be great.
Yes, but make it on fairly thick clear plastic that could be put in a 3 ring binder. This would be super handy as a teacher, student because sometimes you writes notes down on just anything
I would love this as a teacher. I have handouts (scaffolded notes) for my middle school students to complete during my lesson. I fill them in with each class. It would be great to be able to overlay a transparent rocketbook sheet and then upload the "completed" notes to my website. Also, I wouldn't waste so many extra copies having to do one for each class period.
I agree with the frame concept made from a sturdy plastic. The frame would be dark. You could either put the QR and scan symbols on the bottom, or the side (if you included holes for placing in a binder). The QR Code and scan symbols would be on the trusty Rocketbook paper so they could be marked for destination and then cleaned. Frame should have an interior open space equivalent to letter size paper. I could actually see this working for letter and executive sizes.
Please make one that is larger than a standard sheet of paper for meeting handouts/powerpoint printouts where you need to write on that document. I tried the beacons for uploading to my account, but it didn't turn out as clear as the notes in my rocketbook & I hate how it cuts off the corners. Would love to be able to slide the template over (if clear) or under loose papers to scan into my account. This won't work with the rocketbook pdfs, as the black edges & QR code fall behind 8.5x11 pages
Having a feature that enables you to 'copy' something that you can include as part of your notes would be great! I use my Rocketbook to take notes from a textbook and often there are tables, images or graphics that are just too hard to summarize or I would love to capture the whole thing so that it's included as part of my notes - it could be as a transparent sheet as suggested by others or perhaps little icons you can use place on the four corner of the item that is recognized as another page.
A scan sheet similar to the Brother ScanNCut might work. White plastic/paper back with a transpanrent piece on top. QR and border on transparent or white. The place item between sheets for a clean scan.
This would be fantastic for learning hand lettering!
As one comment pointed out, printing on a transparency is an option, but having the transparent sheet integral to the notebook is appealing. Having it as a sheet protector instead of a transparent sheet is good too, but being able to lay the transparent sheet on top of a page in a book or journal, or on top of a part of a large drawing or document is valuable. Using the transparent sheet with a book, document or nameplate on which you can't make marks, then marking the transparency to capture in a scan would be very useful.
