Electronic Chalk system

Background

When a person is doing a presentation, a document is projected to a screen, but he or she would find it is not convenience or impossible to do following


highlight something for the audiences in the screen, need go back to the computer for the highlight


Want to describe something complex by hand writing (no room left for the board because of the screen)

Save the handwritten to the computer


In the classroom lecture, teachers are still like using the chalks for the blackboard-writing, but
Chalks are dirty and not healthy

  
Could not save the handwritten for the student to review Pre-Art


E-Chalk Project (http://kazan.inf.fu-berlin.de/echalk/de/index.php)
Use the electronic board. System is complex and the cost is high


Need to re-construct the meeting room to install the electronic board


Only support handwriting, could not support projection and could not integrate with the common word processor

Core idea/Claims


Our idea - Electronic chalk base on the sensors and computer systems
Electronic chalk has two sensor

Photoelectric sensor to track the user handwriting


Distance sensor to locate the location of the chalk in the screen


Send the track and the location to the computer via Bluetooth or some other wireless connection methods

Application to capture the chalk action and reflect on the computer

Project the content of the computer to the screen


Share the content of the computer to the network in real time

Advantage


1. The most significant advantage is Use some cheap sensor to identify the location and track of the chalk and synchronously reflect in the computer. Project the track to the screen together with the original cont...
