The first connected eWriter worldwide
QuirkLogic™ a provider of productivity technology to help corporate teams spark and grow big ideas, has announced Quilla™ the world’s largest Connected eWriter system. The 42″ electronic paper devices replicate the familiar feel of paper and pen on the world’s largest eWriter. Combined with a supporting ecosystem that offers the power to share content, the eWriter enables organisations to centrally capture and manage their valuable intellectual assets in real-time for business advantage
With Quilla, whiteboard photos stored on personal phones and lost notes become a thing of the past. Built for Simplicity and Everyday Use “To facilitate a free flow of ideas, tools for team brainstorming and concept work needs to be simple, familiar, and easy to use. With Quilla, users can walk up, grab a pen, and comfortably ink out ideas, actions, and plans without hitting setup hurdles and quickly pick up where they left off in an instant,” said Nashir Samanani, QuirkLogic’s co-founder and CEO. “We’ve designed our always-ready technology to fade into the background, so users can focus on what needs to get done.” Quilla is the result of a three year R&D partnership between QuirkLogic and E Ink Holdings. “Significant technological hurdles needed to be overcome and we are delighted with the substantial engineering breakthroughs that the teams at E Ink and QuirkLogic have made in producing the world’s first large format battery operated eWriters with a persistent display,” said Samanani.
“E Ink is proud to collaborate with QuirkLogic in bringing the Quilla to market,” said Dr. CC Tsai, CTO of E Ink Holdings. “The joint development effort harnessed the power of E Ink technology to create a powerful yet familiar collaboration tool. We warmly congratulate QuirkLogic on the launch of Quilla.” The QuirkLogic digital writing system consists of portable, always-on inking devices that go beyond space and location boundaries. Teams are no longer tied to conference rooms that have equipment anchored to a wall and instead can make better use of spaces designed for informal, ad-hoc interaction. The eWriter’s easy on/off mounts, light weight (22 lbs), and battery operation enable workers to go wireless with the device and take it to any workspace. Also, remote participants can contribute and interact with content in real-time through centralized library and workbook sharing, enabled by an intelligent connected “inking” ecosystem that does the heavy lifting behind the scenes, keeping it simple for the users. Organisations can use the solution to personalize common areas, run efficient meetings, sketch out artwork, design products or processes, formulate plans, mark-up documents, and more.
