In 2013, Magnus Wanberg noticed his colleagues were still jotting things down on paper, despite having laptops and smartphones. “Why hasn’t anyone replaced paper with technology?” he wondered, a thought that led him to develop reMarkable Paper. Released in 2016 with a super-thin design that mimicked the feel of writing on paper, the tablet and note-taking device allowed users to convert their handwriting into digital text. Now Wanberg is back with an even more streamlined product: the reMarkable 2. At just 0.19 in. thick, the $399 device is 30% skinnier than its predecessor, with an extended battery life of up to two weeks for each charge. —Mariah Espada
