Smart Ships Digital Dry Erase Board

Smart Technologies has begun shipping a new device for classrooms, the Smart kapp, designed to update the dry erase board for the digital age.

Like a dry erase board, the kapp uses pens, but it can also deliver the images it displays to devices such as smartphones, tablets or PCs.
Features of the kapp include:

  • The ability to share in real time with remote participants via any browser;
  • The ability to save board content as JPEG and PDF files;
  • Sharing to services such as Evernote, Google Docs or OneDrive; and
  • A stain-free surface.

"When I arrived at Smart in October of 2012, I saw the need for a new piece of collaboration technology that would be as simple to use as a dry-erase board but with the benefit of digitally capturing, saving and sharing information," said Neil Gaydon, president and CEO at Smart,, in a prepared statement. "We've achieved those goals and more with SMART kapp."

A 42-inch version of the board sells for $899. More information is available at
