When Moleskine Meets Photoshop

If you can’t choose between high-technology and hipster credentials, a new “smart” Moleskine notebook might be the answer.

The $33 notebook includes access to a smartphone app, though you’ll also need an Adobe Creative Cloud subscription. Once you’ve sketched a design in the notebook, you can take a photo with the app and it will create and upload a vector file to use in Photoshop or Illustrator.

The app will reportedly work in principle with any paper, but to ensure the best results, the notebook pages have special markings to help the app align the image, even if you don’t take the photo at a perfectly straight and flat angle in all three dimensions.
