I was watching my RSS screensaver when this interesting link popped up- http://www.wired.com/news/technology/0,1282,67710,00.html?tw=rss.TOP

It's about schools adapting to this new "whiteboard" technology, replacing a blackboard with a giant computer-driven screen. But what I thought was most interesting -although unmentioned in the article- was that these whiteboards are running OSX!!!

For clarification: There is a beamer on the wall that is connected to a computer, for example Mac OS X, and it gets projected on this wall, then you could use pens to write over the projection. We have those at my school, (about 10) so I know it.

PS: It works with Windows XP, Windows 2000, Mac OS 9 and Mac OS X

Hi

I use a SmartBoard fairly regularly with my MacBook. It's a great combintion - OS X is particularly well suited this this method of human interface, better than Windows IMHO.
