Gone are the days of old-fashioned varsity pencils and ballpoint pens. Even much improved mechanical pencils are becoming obsolete. Notebooks, the old-fashioned kind are also performing a disappearing act. However a different kind of pens, pencils and notebooks are becoming popular – the high-tech digital variety. One of those pens in the market now is Orée Stylograph from a company based in the south of France named – Orée.
For the price of one, they deliver Orée smart pen and a top quality leather-bound notebook. For the digital pen to work properly, it needs a special kind of paper and this is where the notebook comes handy. Orée specializes in designing and crafting tools to inspire imagination – so they are basically teaching old tools, new tricks. Each creation in their collection is handcrafted by artisans at their workshop using only the finest natural materials.
You might think Orée Stylograph outer case is made of rose gold (or coated, ask Apple), but it is not. The triangular-shaped tube is made from pure copper, and it is comfortable to hold. Slim tube measures 12mm in diameter and weigh about 52 grams, making it lighter than most fountain pens. It comes with a Japanese-made Zebra 0.4C ballpoint black ink cartridge, it could be replaced with any standard D1 type ballpoint refill.
These days every gadget comes with an accompanying app. Orée Stylograph can do more than helping you with writing. Anything you write on the notebook can be instantly synced with the app – iOS and Android. Or you can continue to write on the notebook without synching, whenever you decide to sync then all your work will get transferred to the app in one go. Afterward editing and sharing work become an easy task.
Being smart sometimes becomes too smart for your own good. The only drawback of Orée Stylograph is it can be used only on micro-patterned special paper to capture work digitally. Paper refills are a bit pricey and 190 pages in A5 costs $30. The battery operated pen comes with a micro USB cable and one charge is usually good for 3 days of use.
