Here's a life hack for you.

If you're ever in need of a whiteboard for drawing/sketching, grab a few white a4 paper sheets, a roll of transparent duct tape, tape both sheets together side-by-side. Cover both sheets with tape

et voila! You have yourself a portable & foldable whiteboard!
The more sheets you involve, the bigger the whiteboard will be :)

P.S. It's very handy!!

    or if you're too lazy to tape up a whole A4, let alone several: use a plastic sleeve to cover the sheet, repeat and tape together for extensibility. But the plastic sleeves are indeed less likely to be already lying around in your office

    or grab toilet paper and make a whiteboard mummy

    This has to be a joke...

    This is like drinking your own piss when you're a foot away from a water fountain. There are paper sized white boards for like $10 that don't involve spending $25 in take and 30 minutes making the damn thing.

    ...and you can simply laminate a piece of paper, no? Or place it in a plastic sleeve?? Why a fucking role of tape? Lmao

    @AlgoRythm the point is that you can make it bigger.

    @AlgoRythm different properties, different durability ;)

    and nope, not a joke. Works great for me :)

    and one might not have an open shop nearby. Esp the one that has laminated sheets to buy

    @netikras do you think this is suitable for transporting the notes on the board?

    @Lor-inc i've tried it. It works pretty well. Depending on transportation method [how much movement is there], you might preserve the whoke drawing. I manage to preserve 97%+ by driving it folded in my bag on my car's back seat

    Use an online tool for whatever kind of notes you do.

    Diagrams, mind maps, text
    i guarantee you can maintain 100% integrity and if you use the right tool it will be fast as fuck.

    @mundo03 Tried all sorts of things, still nowhere near as convenient as writing by hand, and with brainstorming the only thing that matters is to keep up with my thoughts. I even wrote a tiny online whiteboard myself just to test different input methods but none seemed to work. The least bad was a very big and scrollable touchscreen, but it's expensive.

    @Lor-inc mind maps are exactly for brainstorming.

    Everyhting that happens in the pc has a learning curve.

    You could also try a wiki, I found wikis work similar to How I think: I get distracted on random words, so I can kink that word to another topic :D

    But I do get your point, I always carry a couple of notebooks.

    FX [ Nods in complete agreement. ]

    I'm going to explore VR and see if that can be useful in that area.

    Though I may have to wait for augmented VR because in normal VR you can't see the keyboard !

    I have a touchscreen, but I find without twin cursors it isn't as useful as I had hoped.

    So far its only purpose seems to be for scrolling documents up and down !
