Simplify the creative process and create work using both analog and digital without restrictions. The Moleskine Smart Notebook and companion App, Creative Cloud connected, instantly turn your hand-drawn sketches into fully workable vector files accessible within the Adobe Creative Cloud. – Moleskine

Moleskine, known for its fine notebooks, announced a new notebook today that merges digital and analog. Or in other words: they announced a notebook that costs more than a regular Moleskine, has an Adobe logo and allows you to take a photo and upload the image to Adobe Creative Cloud.

You know what also does that? My Field Notes and the ScanBot app. And a lot cheaper.

Maybe that’s a bit to harsh but they’re not really reinventing the wheel here the way they did with the Evernote integration and OCR a few years ago.

And didn’t Adobe just release an app that does exactly the same but with any notebook and even converts your image to vectors?

I like the concept of digitizing analog tools, but this seems weird.
