It’s been a few months since Improv Electronics updated its line of Boogie Board eWriters, and tomorrow at IFA the company’s set to show off its latest variant, dubbed Rip (“Record. Image. Preserve.”). The 9.5-inch pad is slightly improved from Improv’s previous iterations, as it’ll allow you to actually save any scribbles you’ve jotted down. Better yet, you’ll be able to export your doodles to a computer via its onboard micro-USB port. On the device you’ll find an erase lock to ensure your notes don’t get deleted, along with a stylus holder in case you’re prone to misplacing things. Similar to IE’s other Boogies, the Rip’s reflex LCD uses power only to erase what you’ve written, meaning you’ll get about a week’s worth of battery life per charge. There’s no word on pricing yet, but we’d imagine it’ll be a bit easier on the pockets than a Wacom Inkling — we shall find out when it ships out on November 1st. Full PR past the break.
