Don't be fooled by the elegant wood base, real paper, and ink pen design of the ViewSonic ViewBoard Notepad 7.5" Interactive Writing Pad. It's actually an interactive pen tablet with a 6.4 x 4.0" active area that digitizes every handwritten note and diagram in real-time, allowing educators and others the ability to write notes naturally while creating digital versions that can be shared, organized, and referenced on computers — making it the ideal solution for distance and hybrid learning. With its plug-and-play design, the ID0730 ViewBoard connects to Windows, Mac, and Chromebook systems through its included micro-USB cable without needing any additional hardware or software drivers. The specially designed ballpoint ink and electromagnetic resonance (EMR) hybrid pen doesn't require batteries and can detect 4096 levels of pressure with ±60° tilt, which helps to ensure that every pen stroke is replicated almost exactly. Digital notes work with ViewSonic's myViewBoard software in addition to a wide variety of popular applications such as PowerPoint, Autodesk SketchBook, Paint, InDesign, and Photoshop.
