SMART Notebook SE available as wearable USB bracelet
CALGARY, Alberta --- December 5, 2008 --- SMART Technologies announces SMART Notebook SE (Student Edition) software on a convenient USB silicon bracelet. Designed for technology savvy students, the product offers portable interactive learning software that complements SMART Notebook software, a widely-used lesson delivery application. North American students use several computers each day to complete school work as they move from their homeroom to the computer lab to the library and then home. The bracelet allows them to plug in to any computer, complete assignments and save their work to a single, portable USB key. SMART Notebook SE software runs automatically from the bracelet, so there is no need to download or install it. With 2 GB of space (120 Mb of which is used by SMART Notebook SE), the bracelet makes it easy for students to take homework, digital texts, multimedia and other important information with them wherever they go. The mobile format also means issues concerning variability in computer set up are minimized. Today, the bracelets are compatible with the Windows® operating system. A Mac version and cross-platform version are under development. SMART Notebook software can be used with all SMART Board™ interactive whiteboards and displays, Senteo™ interactive response systems, Sympodium™ interactive pen displays and AirLiner™ wireless slates.
