I wasn't quite sure what to think of the eBeam when I first opened up the box. For $699.00 I was expecting something really awesome. I was not let down one bit. Here is a quick video that explains what eBeam does.
I'm a guy that travels from time to time and I'm usually presenting about the awesome tools I use in my classroom. Sometimes, the setup for my presentations are not exactly what I would like them to me. eBeam is a perfect solution to that problem.
I was able to set this up on my TV monitor in seconds after I attached the USB to the computer and downloaded the software from the disk. I was shocked out how quick the response was and how accurate it was as I navigated my desktop with the eBeam stylus on my TV screen. It was flawless.
For districts looking to enhance their classrooms, meeting rooms and other media aspects of their school, the eBeam is a perfect fit for the teachers and staff that need to be mobile from room to room. Many teachers have to travel from building to building or room to room in their district and this would be the perfect tool to give to these teachers to ensure they have the same access to the technology they need no matter where they end up.

This was very responsive the minute everything was plugged in.
The battery pack is an add-on. It keeps your room wire free.
For some, the $699 price tag is going to be too much, but there is tremendous value in this type of purchase. For the presenters on the go or the teachers moving from room to room, this is the perfect device for attaching to projectors or TVs to give an interactive touch to the work they are doing. I can't wait to hit the road and use mine.
