mimio + whiteboard = wow!

A new product that will sell for under $1000 is set to turn the electronic whiteboard market upside-down when it hits Australia in September.

Called mimio, the product captures words and images written on a normal whiteboard in real-time through a combination of ultrasound and infrared technologies.mimio includes a 24in foldable bar that attaches to the side of a whiteboard, and "sensing units" -- special casings for normal whiteboard pens. The unit connects to a PC, where the data is captured and stored in real-time and colour through an accompanying software application.mimio users have the option of exporting captured data into other software applications such as Microsoft Word, or converting data into html documents. The product can also be used for collaborating long-distance, using Microsoft NetMeeting in conjunction with mimio software.

Virtual Ink, the US company which developed mimio, is calling it the world's first completely portable "Digital Meeting Assistant", weighing only 1.2Kg, and taking only seconds to set up.

The company is currently finalising local distribution arrangements.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
