When it comes to the singular task of taking notes, some people might not have the handwriting necessary for a physical notebook, but carrying around a laptop feels like overkill -- the Pomera from Japanese company King Jim is an ideal solution. The portable e-ink typewriter is perfect for writers on the go, and it's now being made available in the US thanks to a new Kickstarter campaign.
The Pomera folds up to about the same size as a standard notebook, so it's no more of a hassle to carry around. It takes two AA batteries, and those should be enough to power it for 20 working hours, giving plenty of charge. The 6-inch e-ink screen has no backlight, so it's easy on users' eyes and lets them annotate for as long as they have the energy.
