Eraser replacer

The dry-erase board meets the digital age.

Let’s all take a moment to remember the dry-erase board, that staple of many a boardroom brainstorming session. We hardly knew ye. But along has come the replacement tech that its creators at Las Vegas-based Smart Technologies says has made the board obsolete, to be added to the heap with typewriters and floppy disks. The Smart kapp is a digital capture board that lets people share ideas in real time and store them without having to worry about a colleague coming along and scrubbing away their brilliant thoughts. Or a half-completed game of tic-tac-toe, for that matter.
