The not so China Copy

So a few weeks ago I reported that I bought myself a boogie board, a so called E-Ink tablet where you can write onto. The same time I found a similar product in china which I ordered and which arrived now a few weeks later.

Honestly this is the first copy of a device where me for myself I found the copy better than the original! Simply amazing! Apart from the fact that it has no magnets on the back the display itself is better in my opinion. And the original Boogie Board has a less good quality in the production which you can see on the borders. I made a few pictures which i will include so you can see what i mean.

Pros and Cons

  • The Original has magnets on its back so you can stick it to many surfaces.
  • The Original also has the ability to stand up by itself.
  • The writing quality is definitely better on the Copy. Lines are thinner and nicer!
  • The production of the Copy seems better to me than the Original. Astonishing!
  • The Copy came with a Bag and a second pencil. Nice!
  • Coloring the whole screen shows that the Copy is better!

Touching the screen with fingers can leave traces but it is similar on both devices so no special opinion there. I will also buy the larger Copy (not available of the Original) and see how it is keeping up…

Schiefertafel 2.0

A few weeks ago i bought myself a new toy. Some years ago i had already seen its predecessor on the internet, but at that time the critics were devastating due to the batteries. The old version had no ability to change the batteries and after it was empty you needed a new device. This was resolved in the new version which i bought now.

I am talking of a Boogie Board. This is an E-Ink Tablet, where you can write on it with some pressure and which you can erase by pushing a button. It is a great toy to take notices which the world does or does not needs without the need of any paper.

One genius function is that on the back of the device it has 2 magnets which make it possible to fix it onto any metallic surface such as fridges or radiators. Nice idea! As well the board gives the oportunity to fix the stylus in a way that the board stands up by itself.

A feature which need to be mentioned is that there exists an app which allows to keep writings or drawings for the eternity. I have to say that it is not really a good Tool as the Quality of the realized pictures is very poor / not usable at all in some cases. A picture of the board does also the trick!

To conclude: It is definitely a nice toy for younger and older children for a price which you might consider spending if you see the needs ;-)

Virun puer Wochen hunn ech mir eng nei Spillsaach kaaft. Ech war virun Joren iwwert den Virgänger gefall am Internet, ma hat deemools mer den Spaass net gegonnt well d’Kritiken verheerend waren am Zesummenhang mat den Batterien. Wann déi eidel war, war et eriwwer mam Spaass. Déi neisten Versioun kann een an deem Fall eng nei dran maachen an weider geet et.

Ech schwätzen vun engem Boogie Board. Dëst ass een E-Ink Tablett, wou een duerch Drock drop schreiwen kann an duerch een Knäppchen Drock alles erëm propper ass. Genial déi Spillsaach fir schnell Notizen ze maachen wou d’Welt net brauch, ma wou een virun allem keen Pabeier verschwenden muss.

Eng genial Funktioun ass, dass hannen drop um Réck 2 Magnéiter sinn, fir dat ganzt z.b. um Frigo oder enger Heizung op ze hänken. Flott Iddi! Ausserdeem bidd d’Board d’Meiglechkeet den Steft esou ze fixeieren dass et stoen bleift.

Ze erwähnen ass, dass et eng App gëtt, wou d’Konschtwierker kann verweigeren op engem Handy oder Tablett. Ech muss ower soen, dat ass net wierklech eng anstänneg Saach. Den Tool ass schlecht ëmgesat an ech sinn absolut net dermadder zefridden! Ma eng Foto vum Board mécht et och fir Saachen net ze vergiessen!

Mäin Fazit: Eng flott Spillsaach fir grouss Kanner oder eben manner Grousser zu engem Präis deen een eventuell verkraaften kann ;-)
