If you’re anything like us, you still love the feeling of writing with pen on paper. It’s much more satisfying than typing, and most people find it easier to learn and remember matter when they write it down. Despite this, there’s no denying that the digital world affords us many benefits, making saving, sharing, and editing notes more convenient. Well, a new product from Montblanc can help you get the best of both worlds.

Montblanc’s Augmented Paper was launched at Berlin’s technology fair, IFA, and was made available to buy from 22 September. The technology allows you to transfer your handwritten notes onto digital devices using the pen and paper provided by Montblanc. The electronic digitiser contains a notebook filled with lined paper, and is well presented in a black leather case. Anything drawn or written on the paper can be transferred to an app, the Montblanc Hub, with the push of a button.

For the augmented paper to work, you must use a pen from Montblanc’s StarWalker collection, which contains custom-made technology to make it compatible with the notebook. The kit also comes with three ink refills for the pen, tweezers to change the refills, and a USB cable to charge your device. Text transferred to the app can be easily saved and shared with colleagues. The technology recognises 12 different languages, including English, Russian and Chinese.

Montblanc’s Augmented Paper bridges the worlds of traditional and digital note-taking, adding greater capabilities to the act of taking notes on paper. The CEO of Montblanc, Jérôme Lambert states that although “nothing compares to the sensation of writing on paper, being able to share work and thoughts digitally has become essential.” Augmented Paper is the perfect solution to ensure you get the best of both.

Montblanc Augmented Paper is available to buy for £530.
