Equil Smartmarker captures, digitizes and streams whiteboard notes | Stu Robarts | GizMag.com

The notes made on a whiteboard during a meeting or lecture might be important, but once the board is wiped they’re gone. The Equil Smartmarker, however, can make sure that’s not the case. It can capture whiteboard notes and stream them to computers and mobile devices.

The functionality of the Smartmarker is similar to that of the Smart Kapp whiteboard, which pairs with a nearby mobile device via Bluetooth to stream any notes made on it to the internet for remote viewing. The Smartmarker, however, does not require the use of a special whiteboard.

The Smartmarker comprises a sleeve, into which a normal dry erase pen slots, and a sensor. The sensor attaches to a magnetic strip that can be stuck to one side of the writing surface using its adhesive rear. It can be used on most surfaces, including walls painted with dry erase paint, glass and traditional whiteboards. It can sense an area of up to 16 ft (4.9 m) across and 5 ft (1.5 m) vertically.

The sleeve allows the user to write on the whiteboard surface as usual, with different electronic tips used to communicate the use of different color pens. The sleeve continually communicates its location to the sensor via ultrasonic positioning.
