Panobook »

The Studio Neat guys have launched a Kickstarter for a lovely new notebook:

It all started with an insight about how we use notebooks. Even though we spend 8 hours a day doing digital work on a computer, notebooks are an essential analogue tool. We noticed, while sitting at a computer, it would be great to have a notebook directly in front of us. But that would require a different type of notebook, one with more of a panoramic ratio. So that’s what we made.

Panobook works great on a desk, either in front of, behind, or to the side of your keyboard. We wanted to create a notebook that was always open and always within arm’s reach.

I’ve been using a prototype version to take edit notes while I’m recording podcasts, and it’s been great. If you often write at your computer, the $20 is an easy spend.
