Luidia eBeam turns any flat Surface into an Interactive Whiteboard

Robert Scoble of visited recently Luidia, a very interesting company that built a device that turns any flat surface into an interactive whiteboard or collaboration space.

To turn an existing whiteboard into an interactive collaboration space, all you need to do is to put your regular markers in special “sleeves” that connect to the central unit and you can not only record everything written on the whiteboard but also share the whiteboard with other on the Internet.

The price at $750 to $1000 seems to be quite reasonable to me as the unit is portable and can therefore be used in different locations in the school or company. The software to connect other people via the Internet to the meeting or presentation is free and can be downloaded and installed by the participants via the Luidia website.
