  1. Interactive Whiteboards. You can use these boards for training, conducting meetings, and even delivering a presentation. The board connects with a computer and projector for real time interaction.  You can write and save notes on the board throughout the meeting/presentation.    
  2. LCD Graffiti Wall. Get ready for Tangible Interaction to unveil the new LCD Graffiti Wall in March 2014.  This new system will take up less space than the existing system and can be used in daylight, outside.  You provide the LCD screen and Tangible Interaction provides the sensing system and two digital graffiti spray cans.  You can have your logo drawn onto the screen to display throughout your meeting or event, or use it during a conference or trade show and have your guests create some artwork that they can then share on social media! This is the perfect way to get your branding noticed.

  4. Air Drop.  This is an easy way to share information from Apple product to Apple product with iOS 7 or higher.  You can easily transfer information on your iphone, ipad, or MAC computer with a click.  All you need is to be connected to Wi-Fi and Bluetooth and your information is easily “dropped”.  Air Drop the documents you would have originally had to print out or Air Drop photos to a client quickly and seamlessly.
