★★★★★ | Alexander Enders


Your tool for focused, distraction-free and faster reading.

Pencil without sharpening: This permanent pencil is comparable to the duration of 20 normal pencils without changing its writing properties. Time-saving, environmentally friendly and easy to use. If it does wear out, a new graphite tip can easily be screwed in.

The Bookhoover Graphite comes directly to you in a matching metal case including 5 graphite n ibs. Simply screw in the first graphite tip and start writing.

You can also get our Speed Reading Guide as a free eBook at .

     

    Our reading tools are designed to fit comfortably on the finger, which is why three sizes are available.

    You can choose between SMALL, MEDIUM and LARGE choose.

    Please measure the circumference of your index finger at the top joint:

    If the circumference smaller than 4.7 cmplease choose SMALL. If it is larger than 5.2 cmplease choose LARGE. For all index finger circumferences in between (4.7cm to 5.2cm), please choose MEDIUM.

    Tip:
    If you don't have a flexible measuring tape, you can simply take a thread, shoelace or cord, wrap it around the joint and then read off the length in centimeters using a ruler, triangle or folding rule.

    Patented design

    Your smart finger attachment for more focus, speed and concentration. Improve your reading experience and increase your knowledge with the 3D printed reading tool.

    The principle

    Eye guidance

    Reading starts with your eyes. With the Bookhoover as an ergonomic finger attachment, you can guide your eyes through the text in a controlled manner to avoid unnecessary eye movements such as skipping back through the text.

    The eye muscles are less strained and do not tire as quickly as when reading without a guide. Concentration and focus are maintained for longer and reading speed is increased.

    Notes

    Durable graphite tip

    The new permanent pencil is perfect for formulating and structuring thoughts. Taking notes is part of active reading, because this is how knowledge can be anchored.

    The replaceable graphite tip is comparable to the life of 20 pencils, does not need to be sharpened and can be erased. It is ideal for making notes directly in a book or on paper.

    Faces behind

    The brains behind the gadget are Mana and Daniel from Cologne. In a speed reading course, they learned that with the right methods, you can actually read faster and with more concentration.

    As an engineer and tinkerer, Daniel couldn't resist developing the first reading tool thanks to 3D printing, which increases focus when reading. Thanks to Mana's knack for design, eye for detail and medical background, the two were able to realize the idea.

    Look forward to more focus and distraction-free, better reading!

    You can test the Bookhoover for 30 days. If you are not satisfied, you will get your money back!

    Frequently asked questions

    The Bookhoover Graphite is equipped with a graphite tip. This consists of a special graphite and clay mixture that ensures a smooth and even writing experience.

    These tips are extremely durable and, unlike conventional pencils, do not need to be constantly sharpened. Nevertheless, we include 5 tips so that you can write down all your thoughts while reading.

    The use of replaceable graphite tips drastically reduces the consumption of wood and other materials. This makes the permanent pencil an environmentally friendly alternative.

    All Bookhoover variants are symmetrical and can be placed on either the left or right index finger to actively read and guide the eyes through the text.

    Tip: Switch the Bookhoover to the non-dominant hand from time to time, read and write with this hand to challenge and train the brain anew.

    Although it is natural to use the finger to focus on a text, as children do, this can be a hindrance as the finger is short and thick and covers too much text.

    A longer object with a thin tip allows a wider field of view and offers a greater range of movement.

    E-book reader Note: Here the finger would activate the screen.

    The pen or similar must be actively held, which leads to constant strain on the hand muscles and the entire forearm. You will easily recognize the cramping of the hand and forearm when "holding the pen in the tweezer grip".

    You also lose the ability of "natural finger movement" from the finger ball joint with a pen.

    The Bookhoover as an eye guide combines the comfort and naturalness of your own finger by avoiding any kind of cramping, yet still offering the range of movement of a pen or a pointer.

    Bookhoover® Graphite: The pencil tip can be unscrewed as a unit and replaced with a new one.

    Bookhoover® Ink: The ballpoint pen pen unit can be unscrewed and fitted with a new refill.

    Bookhoover® Stylus: Here, only the front tip is replaced after wear and tear. You can do this with the enclosed pliers.

    Important: The pen variants and pen units are not interchangeable .

    Info: The Bookhoover® Flow and the Bookhoover® Booky do not have an integrated pen.

    Yes, the type of text lines you guide your eyes through is independent of the display. (classic books, printouts, eBooks on tablets or e-readers, newspapers, magazines, etc.) The pointing cap (pacer) is functionally the same for all Bookhoover variants.

    The book cover is 3D printed from biocompatible PA12. We then insert the respective pen refills by hand to complete the reading tool. Thanks to state-of-the-art additive manufacturing, a completely new haptic product experience can be created.

    The Bookhoover is produced using innovative 3D printing technology, the multi-jet fusion process. This allows its special filigree design and the flexible finger holder to be reproduced from just one material. It also allows a completely new haptic product experience to be created.

    The 3D printed base bodies are then carefully assembled by hand with the respective pen unit.

    Because you wished for it.

    The Bookhoover Flow is a customer request and is based on your feedback.
    As a light reading aid, the Flow is purely for guided reading to actively guide the eyes through the lines of text and benefit from the increased focus.

    The same applies to the Bookhoover Booky. Satisfied users have already requested a smaller version as a reading aid for their children. This is precisely where the advantage of guided reading becomes apparent, in order to direct the attention of beginning readers and combine it in a playful way.

    Bookhoover, a great innovation

    I was a little skeptical at first, but after a short time I was totally thrilled. By using the Bookhoover as a guide, I read much faster, can concentrate better while reading and my eyes don't tire so quickly. I now own the Flow and the Graphite, and I wouldn't want to be without either of them. I am delighted with them and can recommend them without reservation.
    I would also like to mention the very good customer service, courteous and solution-oriented in the interests of the customer.

    A great little helper

    I have to keep my focus on a sheet of paper very often during the day when I'm putting together my customers' orders so that I don't have to check again whether I've packed all the items correctly.
    I love this gadget for making notes and keeping focus and wouldn't want to be without it.

    I discovered Bookhoover - Reading Aid by chance. My positive impression was confirmed the first time I used it. The clever design makes reading easier for me, my eyes don't get tired so quickly - especially as an aid to small print, which is becoming more and more common. Thank you very much!
