Laboratory Sciences are in an awkward stage between traditional lab notebooks and virtual lab notebooks. Many institutions require researchers to use lab notebooks as *permanent* documentation of their experiments (i.e. in pen on paper). Even without this requirement, A written lab notebook is standard in labs, but it is very common for people to translate their lab notebook to a virtual format for their own reference. This poses an unnecessary redundancy and an open void that rocketbook could fill.
Need: A rocketbook that is non-erasable, ~100-500 pages long in grid format with a space for date, title, and signature.
"Non-Erasable Lab Notebook" (suggested by Nathan on 2021-05-04), including upvotes (1) and comments (0), was merged into this suggestion.
The very scannable pages, the QR code, numbered pages, the software, these are all great features that aren't mutually exclusive to being re-useable. I've been using Rocketbook One's for everything! I feel the tangible paper record is easier searchable, reliable, and I'm not keen with HAVING to scan and every page if want to retain the record. As well I do work in areas that don't allow phones or tablets, but let me take as many of my paper notebooks as I can!
Please bring back Rocketbook One. I need to switch pages quickly and can’t wait for the gel pens to dry. My notes end up smudged and illegible.
I'm surprised this doesn't have more upvotes. This is about the only way to do lab notebooks for middle school science labs. I can't get by with 15 pages. From a business standpoint it seems like it would make sense as well. The alternative to me buying a new one every year is that I will print a bunch of free pages and bind them myself, which is a pain, but free. I'd much rather support US business.
Typical pen and ink has myriad benefits over the Frixion system for technical/ field work - especially hot/wet environments (steel mills, boiler rooms, chemical plants, rainy days). Archival ink and felt-tipped pens are hard to beat in tough conditions.Paper can be recycled more times than HDPE, is biodegradable, and sequesters carbon.The reusable notebooks "ghost" after repeat uses, which bothers the neurotic among us.
I was VERY surprised to learn the Rocketbook One had been discontinued since it fills such a specific need. The need and desire to write on paper is not going away. I would bet that most people who use the Rocketbook One want to keep these notebooks in perpetuity. The electronic upload and text conversion are great, but nothing replaces chronological search and review like having the entire set of notebooks. Our brains are visual. It's not just the data.I certainly understand trying to promote sustainability, but dictating it is another issue altogether. I imagine your paper fans will find another solution, rather than buy a re-usable notebook. I myself will probably print your PDFs and bind them. Keep in mind too, there are other handwriting-to-text software solutions out there.Lastly, paper is very sustainable. Trees are a renewable resource and paper is both recyclable and biodegradable as others have mentioned.
Yes this would be great as I have a hard time with the frixion pens lasting...BRING IT BACK!!!
We have found that in hot and humid environments, the Rocketbook One is better since perspiration from your arm and hands are much less likely to smear on paper.
Many fountain pen enthusiasts are caught between their love of calligraphy and the modern storage of thoughts and information. I journal this way, using Rocketbook One executive style notebooks. Now, I no longer can continue to upload and store my personal thoughts as your product had made possible. Please bring it back and market it to this niche.
I go through three to four of these a year - my projects are rolling, so I need to have them both in a paper notebook and electronically. PLEASE BRING THESE BACK!!! The fact that less than a year after they are discontinued you can't find them anywhere, shows there is plenty of demand!
A stitched and bound, hardcover notebook with real paper pages can capture the flexibility and permanence of popular journaling methods, the record-keeping required by lab sciences and patent attorneys, and durability needed by business travelers. The loss of the Rocketbook One means my Rocketbook app has been idle (except to use Beacons), replaced by a cheap bound dot-journal. And another... and another, neatly lined up on my bookshelf. Because paper's great!Move past the stigma against single use, and recognize that the paper is far more sustainable than plastic. And it's just a better overall writing experience! But it takes a long time to flip through, so I miss the digital cataloging.
