Moleskine lets you have your digital cake and eat it, too (we’re pumped)

Moleskine releases a product to connect your digital and analog lives, and we couldn’t be more excited about it.

For all of the paper-loving compulsive organizers out there

If you are anything like I am, you love the tactile feel of crafting words and art in your favorite Moleskine notebook. If…you are still like I am, you have dozens of notebooks that once filled, go in the trash or into a cluttered stack on your desk. “I might need that later,” you whisper like the Moleskine-loving hoarder you are as you slip the canvas that holds the ideas of the last 2-3 weeks into the stack, never to be referenced again.


Most note takers continue down this ineffective path for two reasons: Lack of organization and an inability to search and edit your notebooks.

For the first problem, I suggest you check out the fantastic method of bullet journaling. I’ve personally been using it for the last few months and it has become a key part of my workflow.

To tackle the second issue, the Italian notebook manufacturer, Moleskine has joined the growing market of digital pens to turn your cat scratching and chicken scribble into digitized copy. Promising to keep your ideas connected, Moleskine aims to connect your analog and digital lives.

Moleskine introduces the Smart Writing Set

To preserve the tactile connection of analog, the set combines the modern Pen+, Paper Tablet, and Moleskine Notes app to allow you to preserve the pleasure of writing with pen and paper while still being able to effectively edit, organize, search, and share.

When used together, the Pen+ recognizes the specially textured paper and records your writing and streams it to your iOS or Android device via Bluetooth to be exported to Evernote, Google Drive, Adobe, and iCloud. Once digitized, you have full control of your writing.

Search, edit, and share

If you don’t have your normal device available, the Pen+ will store up to 1,000 pages of scratchings using internal memory until paired again.

The current price point for the Moleskine Smart Writing Set comes in at $199 and additional notebooks will set you back $29.95. It is a bit of a steep price but will likely be reduced as the digital pen space develops more competition.
