Rocketbook's new digital notepad Flip is bound at the top, an erasable steno pad that you can wipe clean in seconds. This is the first notebook for Rocketbook that isn't bound on the side, making it more comfortable for left-handed writers, the company said.

The company is known for its notebooks that pair with a digital app, letting you write notes in any fashion — and store them, as scribed, online. Sharing the notes is fast, as the pages can be forwarded to different online accounts, including Dropbox and Evernote, as well as pushed to others through iCloud, Slack and other methods.

Rocketbook's devices work best with certain inks, notably Pilot FriXion pens, which come in a number of different guises including ballpoints, highlighters and markers. These inks can be quickly erased with a soft microfiber cloth, and the pages used again.

The company has started to branch into other products, like the Rocketbook Beacons, which let people capture things written on a regular white board instantly online. They also recently launched a peel-and-stick whiteboard called the Think Board 2X.

Each new Fit comes with 18 front and back pages — with one side covered with lines, and the other side of the same page covered with dots. You can also pick up another version with fully blank pages.

There are two different sizes available, an executive size for $32 and a letter size for $34. You'll also get a pen and cloth with each pad to start writing, and both sizes go on sale today.
