  • Nice slides you have you there.

    Interactive Whiteboards are now indeed affordable to individual teachers and presenters with the use of the Wii Remote.

    With the latest Smoothboard release, we are now closer to having the features of an actual interactive whiteboard with the use of the Wii Remote. The current Smoothboard version contains annotation tools and a powerful floating toolbar that allows full control of presentations and lessons.

    Regards,
    Boon Jin
