Smartboards are the technology used by many schools, allowing a computrer's screen to be used as a projectable whiteboard.

Role in the ProjectEdit

The SMART Board is the reason we did this project in this first place. SMART Boards are expensive pieces of technology that are phasing out whiteboards in classrooms. How they work is simple: infra-red signals, projectors and a computer combine to make the ability to write on a board which then would present itself on the computer. However, the boards cost around $1,500.

In this project, we wished to phase these out with a simpler and [much] cheaper alternative: Smoothboard. Essentially, a SMART Board that can be used anywhere with similar technology.


  • We were doing this project to help out an Indonesian school by creating these boards so that they didn't have to buy expensive SMART boards for their classrooms.
