Hey colleagues. This is my solution to the “how do I still write on the board when there ain’t no board” problem. I use a USB webcam which can be easily grabbed and moved between being clipped to my monitor and this LEGO thing (or maybe you have two webcams). I think I captured enough of the construction to give you an idea of how it goes together.

I tinkered with the arm lengths to get the camera at just the right height to see fully an A4 sheet of paper or this wonderful Boogie Board which I heartily recommend if you want to save on paper and markers (note that it only writes in 1 color, so sometimes you just have to go back to paper and markers after all. but the quick-erase function is just great.)

Hope this helps someone 🙂

From what I have searched, the closest thing I could find is a boogie board:


However I don’t think this was the item, since I’m pretty sure you have to implement a workaround to use it as a stylus on a computer.

For me, I replaced notebooks and paper with an LCD writer. An LCD writer requires no software, nothing to be plugged in. Just your write on it and scribble notes. Then click the erase button. Rinse and repeat.

Just to clarify (bc there’s a title limit), I don‘t really like the feeling of writing on journals, and my scratch work would always get cluttered. It’s pretty pricey at $35 for what is essentially just replacing regular paper, but it’s been a big help. It’s so satisfying to write on, so it has motivated me to do my work in a weird way because of that. I also use it for textbooks because my handwriting is pretty big. I’d definitely recommend it for anyone that’s like me and is already saving a lot of money by teaching themselves.

More details about the boogie board:

• LCD writing tablet

• there are smaller versions at a cheaper price

• lasts for a really long time

• powered by a replaceable circular battery

• no on/off button – just start writing

• erases in an instant

• incredibly lightweight and thin

• different background template papers

• semitransparent when you take off the paper

• pen magnetically holds onto the board

• pen can also clip to the side of the board

Update: there have been a lot of questions about whether or not you can save your notes on here. You can’t on the boogie board itself, but you can by using its app and scanning. You can save, organize, and share your work from there. I just posted on my profile an example of the process bc it got taken down here. It’s similar to the rocketbook saving process. I just prefer the boogie board bc it’s lighter and erases with a click of a button

All in all, if you’re looking for something to use in the long term to write your notes on, I’d suggest you invest in an iPad or a drawing tablet of some sort. If you’re not going to take notes on the boogie board too often, it’s a safe bet. I use it mostly as scratch paper, but the boogie board can do a good job at saving your notes too if you’re looking for a cheaper alternative. It’s great for doodling too

It’s not exact, but this is the one I have Boogie Board Blackboard Letter 8.5 x 11 inches – Paperless Notepad – Authentic Boogie Board https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07D7WLDMV/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glc_fabc_Csb8FbP6PT2VJ

As far as a regular pen tablet goes, you cant go wrong with any of them, and if thats what all you intends to use it for, I’d say you could look up just about any pen tablet to use instead of dropping a bunch of money on a Wacom. I mean, the Wacom would probably take a lot more abuse and last a lot longer, but this also can boil down to how you handle your electronics.

The biggest thing to consider here is the size of the actual tablet, which obviously translates to the size of the usable area: personally I would prefer a larger tablet for this, the closer to a sheet of paper in size the better, simply because anything involving a pen in a tiny space isn’t fun. For me, at least. The really big ones are also easier to hold in your arm if you dont like/need it to be on a flat surface.

But in that same vein you’d have to consider what kind of portability you need, because while the smaller ones aren’t as comfortable to use, they’re definitely a lot easier to throw in a small pack and use in a smaller space on a desk or the like.

I guess while I’m thinking about it I could throw something like this out there. It isn’t Wacom but it seems to be exactly what you want:
