Erase and reuse your Rocketbook Wave up to 5 times using your microwave when you use any FriXion pen by Pilot. Pilot FriXion pen ink turns clear at 140 degrees F / 60 degrees C, and the Rocketbook Wave is specially constructed to be microwave safe.

Cutting Edge Classic
How did you come up with the idea for this product?
Inventors Joe Lemay and Jake Epstein were both “notebook guys,” but more and more found themselves wanting to maintain their notes in the cloud. “We tried every digital pen you can imagine, but no piece of hardware felt as natural as pen and paper. And another battery to charge? Forget it. When we looked at the notebook industry, we wondered, why hasn’t there been more innovation? Soon we began thinking, how can we make the coolest, most innovative notebook in the world?”
