Abstract

The Boogie Boardâ„¢ eWriter device continues to develop into a major product of Kent Displays, Inc. Based upon the bistable cholesteric technology, the eWriter is a writing surface in which an image can be drawn with the touch or light pressure of an untethered stylus such as pointed object or even the finger or finger nail. The unique feature of the eWriter is that the written image is instantly erased with the push of a button and a new image written. In addition to the traditional eWriter modes previously developed, the Sync eWriter is a new device that can electronically store and wirelessly transmit via Bluetooth images created on the eWriter (with a specialized stylus). This device utilizes a traditional eWriter display and thus could have all of the modes of operation previously developed along with the new Sync eWriter device, which includes a touchscreen below the display to record all written images in a digital file. There are anticipated to be many applications for the traditional eWriter, eWriter with save feature, and related accessories some of which are provided below.
