Epson is set to launch a new ultra short throw projector that can turn any surface into a communication tablet. The Epson 450Wi is aimed at classrooms and will provide interactive capabilities to students.
“Anchored close to the wall, you can project extra-large, 80″ images from just 2′ away,” says the company.
In addition, the projector works on almost any surface “an existing whiteboard, a flat wall, even a chalkboard with dry-erase paint. Interactive capabilities are built into the projector and not into a board, so virtually any surface will work”.
Finally, its interactive pen works like a mouse on your PC/Mac. “It is software agnostic and Web 2.0 friendly. Similar to a computer monitor, the open architecture allows users to use, share, and engage with virtually any software, digital media file or e-textbook,” concluded the company.
