Description for The Noteboard Ltd. Noteboard Pocket-Size Dry Erase-Board (NB35X15)
As seen on TechCrunch, Gizmodo, Huffington Post, Entrepreneur.com, and Forbes, the Noteboard is the dry-erase solution for those who want the flexibility of a whiteboard without actually having to lug a whiteboard around. Reviewers say, "It looks like someone took notecards and laminated them so they fold up." That's pretty much exactly how Noteboards started. They are designed, assembled, packaged, shipped, sold, marketed, and otherwise managed by one guy, all alone, in Arlington, Virginia.

This product is basically a few dozen blank notecards laminated together. There is about a 4mm gap between each notecard, so that the whole thing can fold up nicely. As a result, you are forced to separate your notes / drawings etc. into these separate note cards. I actually really love this. I use each note card as a separate space for a thought or a task and I work through each item. Usually, for the top row of cards, I'll write out each day of the week and have each card in that row as a new day, in which I can list all the tasks I need to complete. It really helps to keep me organized.
The marker that comes with the Noteboard is pretty terrible. I replaced it pretty quickly after. I prefer to use the Expo Vis-a-vis wet erase markers because they are thin pointed and I can fit a lot of writing / drawings in one box. It also helps me to not erase everything I've just written when my arm mistakenly wipes across the Noteboard.

I'm using it to track my son's piano practice. It's been a pain to get him (and his mother) to remember to practice daily and what to practice, so I've divided up the board into goals, current practice pieces, review pieces, etc, and a block for each day of the week to indicate time practiced and notes about the practice session.
Here's where the Noteboard is beating a regular whiteboard or a practice planner/notebook:
The notebook gets forgotten, so a big whiteboard on the wall is a great reminder. But there's no good place near the piano to hang a whiteboard... we can't reach it to write on if we hang it over the piano, and it's not a place for a whiteboard when company is coming. A traditional whiteboard there has to get tucked behind some furniture or leaned up against a wall where we risk someone brushing against it, and it's clunky to take it down and work on it at the table. So my attempts to use a regular whiteboard quickly ended with the whiteboard repurposed in another room. The practice planner has the info we need, but it doesn't serve as a reminder, and even when my son remembers to practice, he never bothers to look at the planner to remember what he's supposed to work on.
The Noteboard combines the best of both approaches... it's big and obvious, I can hang it where it's inconvenient to write on, but easily take it down and put it on the kitchen table to update the next week's practice plan. When company is coming, it easily disappears into a desk drawer.
And that's where it gets better... I can take my whiteboard to piano lessons with us. I don't have to have a notebook that needs info copied onto the whiteboard, then info from the whiteboard copied into the planner the day of the lesson (or a whiteboard reminder and the assumption that the notebook will get filled out properly)... all of our goals and tracking info just goes with us and we update it directly with the piano teacher. So it results in less "clerical overhead," as I can just glance at the board and see if my son has practiced today and what he practiced on... if he practiced but didn't make appropriate notes, I see that and can ask to have it filled in on the day he practiced, instead of depending on him "remembering" (otherwise known as "inventing") what he did all week right before we head to the lesson.
There's one panel front that's exposed when it's folded up... we quickly learned to just not write on that corner (it's the one with the company information, so it's easy to remember). Outside of that, the other panels are well-protected from erasure if it's kept folded flat... inside the pouch or with a band around it. The marker doesn't transfer across panels.
The only real drawback I have to complain about is I dislike the gaps between the cards... I know they're there to make it fold up easily, but it's a pain when you want to draw "big". If that were solved... folds up neatly and easily, but with a solid background and no significant "bumps" that snag the pen, I'd give it five stars in a heartbeat.
