Hmmm, looks like MS is infringing on Apple's iMat patent.
Bring on the lawsuit!

Yep here the same. SMARTBOARD, just giant whiteboards converted into a tablet like this.
It's cool when used properly but teachers apear to not like to take the effort to get to know how to work with them.

Like a smartboard, but much more expensive!

Buy your stocks, it's gonna be a hit, people.

Smart/Promethean boards suck. Hard. Touch isn't accurate, and they're front projection, usually with a cheap projector. So you get shadows.

How so? It's literally a giant tablet mounted on a wall. Saying they are infringing by doing this, means you are giving Smart rights to all tablets... it seems to me.

This is correct, Smart boards are lame. What they have there in the office is basically a TV with a full desktop computer built in. That's much more impressive. Calling it a tablet is kinda silly though, even if it technically is.

Nah, no way. I'm not referring to those subpar image quality, sluggish craps.

I'm actually referring to a massive 80 inch Plasma/LCD (preferably Plasma, love the image quality of a good Hitachi plasma) display with a capacitive touchscreen on top thumb.gif

Exactly, these are not SMARTBOARDS. I can't remember it but I saw a video about these things before. They were explaning how it could be used in a bar to tell when a person's drink was empty and you can place phones on it and it will automatically upload or download files too and from the devices. These things are actually really cool devices.

If anyone has watched MIA Ghost Protocol, you will notice they use one in the train/hideout scene.
