65" Android 'tablet' looks to evolve the simple white board (video)

A Turkish company has decided that for some reason or another, it would be a good idea to not just build a 65" Android tablet, but wants to market it as an alternative to smart boards...

not really revolutionary, my school has smartboards, although it is projected from a projector, but it would be cool i guess

thats cool and all but other than standing in front of the board to look like your doing something... how is that any better than say using a drawing app on a tablet that is HDMI mirrored to a big TV?

And since im thinking about it.. how is that better than a regular white board when you factor in expense, rare earth materials used in its production, ect? First i've heard of all this so I gots questions! :) My school is old school... white boards n projectors.. lol. of course, we do have some pretty cool interactive android (not the OS) patients.

I think that's just the frame rate of the video recorder not syncing with the refresh rate of the 65" display (which is probably 60Hz).

Think of the multi-appendage gestures you could do on that monster screen!!
