Mimio image

Link a white board to a PC with the portable Mimio from Boston-based Virtual Ink. The capture bar connects on the upper left corner of the board; it can “read” a board as large as four-by-eight feet. Special styluses hold standard dry-erase markers and feed information to the capture bar. The $499 unit weighs just 2.5 pounds and folds up for easy storage. Add-ons include the $249 BoardCast, which streams presentations over the Web; a $69 handwriting recognition option; and MimioMouse, which allows presenters to control and write on PowerPoint presentations on the big screen. A $299 Mimio FlipChart unit comes on the market this month.
