Rocketbook launched with one big idea in mind: the world needs clever, affordable, and reusable products that bridge the gap between traditional analog notetaking and the infinite power of the digital universe. In 2013, after exploring every highfalutin digital pen, tablet, and scanning application in the universe, founder Joe Lemay set out on a long, strange trip to develop tools that would help the world organize and share their ideas, save a little money, and maybe even protect the environment from paper waste.
In early 2014, Joe’s first step was to bounce the idea off his longtime engineer friend, Jake Epstein at their favorite idea-generating space pitstop, the Sligo Pub in Somerville, Massachusetts. In less than a year, Joe and Jake would develop and launch the world’s first microwave-to-erase, digitally connected notebook, the Rocketbook Wave. It was revealed to the world at the Launch Festival in San Francisco that summer and would go on to be their first of many successful crowdfunded innovations.
Joe and Jake didn’t stop with culinary note organization. While showcasing the Wave on the May 2015 season finale of Shark Tank, they were developing a new reusable notebook that didn’t require a kitchen appliance. The Rocketbook Everlast wipe-to-erase technology would be the patented foundation for the NEW future of notetaking and the revolutionary magic behind three new flagship products: the Everlast, Mini and Fusion.
The first versions of the free Rocketbook application for iOS and Android were also developed during the early Rocketbook years. At long last, this epic resource instantly connected handwritten notes on a page with some of the most popular cloud services in the universe such as Email, Evernote, Google Drive, and more. After over a dozen updates, new cloud integrations, and infinite new features, the app has evolved to recognize and transcribe handwritten notes and even beam some non-paper surfaces into new dimensions.
The future is vast and bright for the fearless Rocketbook crew. Especially with the help of the not-so-secret to their greatness... the Rocketbook fans. The team constantly seeks and develops new ideas, products, and features that come from the Rocketbook community. With over 2 million notebooks scanning in the wild and over a million intelligent app users jotting and sharing their ideas … Rocketbook is poised to help make every idea matter.
