Think of the way one would write on a traditional chalkboard or on white-boards, the same cannot be done while using projectors. With the Virtual Board, we aim at replicating the same experience electronically. Virtual board will allow the users to access electronic files, write or draw using a stylus. The stylus will be a portable device and in the shape of a normal regular pen. This will make classroom learning more interactive. Virtual Board can be variably used in classrooms at all levels of education, in corporate board rooms and work groups, in training rooms, broadcasting studios and others.
The objective is to make this experience better by creating a virtual touchscreen (board) on the wall. This can be done by installing a setup which will act as a virtual touchscreen and can be used as an add-on to the existing wall projectors which are being currently used in many places. Using the virtual board, the presenter will be able to directly write or navigate through the screen without having to move back and forth from the projected screen to the computer or laptop.
