Abstract

The Boogie Boardâ„¢ eWriter 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 a 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. A new image can then be written. In addition to the traditional eWriter modes previously developed, the Boogie Board Sync eWriter is a new device that can electronically store the written image. The image can be transmitted via Bluetooth or USB. This class of device utilizes a traditional eWriter display and thus has all of the modes of operation previously developed. There are many applications for the traditional eWriter, eWriter with save feature, and related accessories. New applications of the eWriter in classroom, laboratory, and other business settings are described below. The key aspect is using the Boogie Board eWriter as an input device to enable handwritten and drawn information to be uploaded and combined with data storage and management services.
