Moleskine's latest collaboration is with Dropbox, for a smart laptop that uses a complementary camera application to send journal pages to your connected Dropbox account. Just use the Moleskine Page Camera application (for iOS and Android) to take a photo of a page on the Moleskine + Dropbox smart laptop, and the pages will be displayed as an image, vector or text file in your Dropbox account.
The smart portable Dropbox is a riff on Moleskine's existing smart laptops, which do the same, but with Creative Cloud or Evernote. The pages of the smart notebooks are lined with small dots to help with text recognition, and there are squares at the corners to help the camera align the journal content. It does not add much more than you would get when taking a picture of a regular diary with your phone's camera, but it saves you an extra step. If you are the kind of person to make a meticulous backup of the pages of your journal, it would be good to have it as a quick shortcut.
The Moleskine + Dropbox smartbook is available online today for $ 29.95 in simple versions and with rules.
