Project Concept

Concept: The Virtual Whiteboard is a device that can display text messages from cell phones anywhere in the world. The product utilizes an LCD screen that can be updated over the 3G network, WiFi, or USB and can display desired messages with real-time updates.

Motivation: The current version of a whiteboard, where public information is displayed while you are away is neither accessible nor advanced enough for people's busy lifestyles. With the Virtual Whiteboard, you can communicate en masse, from anywhere with just a text message from your cell phone. This is the ultimate convenience for someone who needs to let other people know information without having to divulge private contact information.
