This new tablet brings the effortless feeling of writing on paper to the digital world
It's the latter group that inspired Wanberg and his team to create the reMarkable tablet, a device that looks, feels, and acts like paper.
"We just had this idea that we fell in love with: A device that could take the paper experience but add digital power on top, because paper is so limited," Wanberg, the founder and CEO of reMarkable, told Business Insider.So Wanberg started asking around, trying to see if anyone else felt the same way he did.
"We found a resounding 'yes.' This was an unsolved problem," he said.
Wanberg and his team in Oslo, Norway, set out to build the tablet, eliciting the help of Japanese company E Ink, the leading creators of electronic ink for ebooks.
Four years later, reMarkable is debuting its tablet for paper people, a device designed to do three things: Read, write, and sketch. The device costs $529, with the accompanying pen retailing for $79.
