The Evolution of One Man’s Idea

In today’s world, the technology allows us to do so much more than we thought was possible. With the constant evolution of technology in mind, we tend to reinvent inventions in a bigger and better way.  The invention of the whiteboard was no exception. Invented by Albert Stallion and available in the market in the early 1960s. He used to at a steel manufacturing company. One day he suggested that the enameled steel could also be used in the schooling systems as a writing board. His idea went unnoticed by the associates he worked with since the company was a steel manufacturer. Mr. Stallion then parted ways and set out to create a new whiteboard manufacturing business called MagiBoard. These whiteboards gained popularity on a global scale, 3 years after being released.

Today, the invention of the blackboard has been replaced. However, whiteboards are still used in countries that are dealing with economical downfalls, however most of the world has already adapted itself to the new Smart boards that are pressure sensitive and have a built-in projector. The main drawback of these boards is that they’re an expensive alternative. Companies now offer smarter surfaces dry erase paint. This sort of paint leaves behind no smudges and discoloration when drawn on. It’s fairly easy to apply and costs a lot less than Smart Boards.

Applying this paint is a lot less daunting compared to the conventional installation of a Whiteboard. A person doesn’t have to worry about size restrictions or deal with the oversized boarders that whiteboards have. These paints also come in 2 variations. Colored and Clear. Plus, the fact that they’re super convenient to use, easy to find, eco-friendly and cost effective make them a must have in every office, home, or school.
