Aqua Notes: For When Inspiration Strikes In The Shower

If you do your best thinking in the shower, you either have soggy wads of paper on the floor or a lot of forgotten ideas. But it doesn't have to be that way.

Check out Aqua Notes. For $7, you get a waterproof notepad on which to jot brilliant ideas that occur as you're scrubbing down. Finally, multitasking while getting your shower on, and, potentially, turning inspiration into realization.

The reason we forget, is a notion psychologists call retrieval failure, which means if information is not retrieved and rehearsed, you forget it. So what's the answer to remembering -- truly remembering? Writing it down so it doesn't decay!

This isn't the be-all for we memory-impaired, but let's be honest, you're more likely to use Aqua Notes for shopping lists or as a reminder to call the woman you met -- after the obligatory three-day wait is satisfied.  

In either case, it's worth $7 not to forget.
