Singapore-based MyFirst has launched a new drawing pad called the Sketch Book. Unlike many other drawing pads on the market, the MyFirst Sketch Book has a unique instant digitization feature. With this feature, users can digitally save their notes or drawings on their smartphone.
In addition to the MyFirst Sketch Book, the company also offers a Smart Stylus, a MicroUSB charging cable, a quick start guide and 3 replacement pen tips in the packaging. The drawing pad has a large 10-inch LCD screen in a plastic case that you can take notes or draw art on. It contains a 1,000 mAh battery that has a lifespan of approx. 50 hours with continuous use.
The MyFirst Sketch Book is charged via a microUSB connection with a 5 V / 1A power supply. Even without power, users can still take notes on the drawing pad. However, it needs to be charged to clear the contents on the screen. It’s 11.7mm thick and 335g in weight. Speaking of the intelligent pen: it has a pressure sensitivity of 8,192 pens.
It’s contained in an 80 mAh battery that can be used for around 200 hours on a single charge. The two buttons on the pen increase or decrease the width of the line when drawing. Interestingly, there is no way to undo or delete the last line drawn. The only option is to erase the entire drawing.
To save the drawings on a smartphone, users need to install the MyFirst Sketch Book app, which is available from the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store. The drawings are saved as JPEG files on the smartphone. The drawing pad has three hardware buttons below the screen: Save, Power On / Off, and Delete.
Users can also save their graphics locally on the device by clicking the Save button. There is also an interlock switch on the lower left side of the device. The MyFirst sketchbook is available in white and black and is available in India for 7,500 rupees.
