Abstract

Based upon the bistable cholesteric technology, Boogie Board™ eWriters are used to capture writing such as notes, lists and sketches using either a stylus or fingernail in “write/trace and erase” devices, or with “write and save” where the device can electronically capture images written on the display, then store, transfer or permanently erase the images. For some use models it is desirable to affix a Boogie Board to a surface to display information in an interesting fashion. The attachment method could be permanent or temporary so that the eWriter could be affixed to, removed from or repositioned multiple times on the surface and used in other ways at the user’s discretion.
