Is there a device that is similar to a chalkboard?

by on January 28, 2010

Q: I am wondering if there is a device that I could use a stylus with that would be useful in writing out math problems? In other words, is there a device that would simulate a virtual non-ending chalkboard or blackboard? For example, if I was to use it instead of a blackboard for Calculus problems.

    A Tablet PC running Windows 7 would probably fit the bill. See this built in Math Drawing software: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/products/features/tablet-pc

    If you have access to a PC running Windows 7 I suggest you check it out on a normal pc to see if the software meets your needs, then you can focus on tracking down either a tablet pc, or a input stylus for a desktop.

    The new Apple iPad might also be a cheaper option, but that will dependent on the right software being available.
