What does my Board Buddy do?


This simple but genious device makes a vibration-free, maximum magnifiable duplicate of the smartboard or any other projection, while maintaining the original image quality and offering the possibility to manipulate the colors. It’s both ideal as add-on to existing school systems with a camera and as a stand-alone device with a monitor. The joystick and simple, colorful buttons & the fact they can determine which view works best for them turn this device into your best solution for a better view of the smartboard. Students will be more involved during lessons and can participate actively in the class exercises. my Board Buddy helps to work independently.

my Board Buddy development


Sensotec developed my Board Buddy to solve a classroom situation that could not be overcome with existing devices. Sensotec employer Andy was triggered by the fact that we could not offer an adequate solution for a very real problem that one of our young low vision customers, Eline, was confronted with. No existing device could magnify the smartboard well enough for her to be able to see it. After having spent quite some time on developing the device, Andy was very proud to hand over the prototype of this simple but unique device to her. Eline was over the moon. Our customers keep inspiring us, as they always have.
