This is truly a great resource. For around $200 you can make this up and I cannot see any great
issue. I already purchased all the items needed, including the online item. My total was around
$215. Just waiting on the one important part to come in and i'll believe I'll have a nice setup.
Will update after the build.

I thought spending my 30 dollars that I will get something else than just a video advising me to buy
one of the 3 main real ink impression devices that we can find on the electronic market. The slate
that the creator of this video recommand is still in developpement (for 4 years) on android (I
tested it many times with samsung s7 and talked a lot with the creators of the electronic slate),
and the bluetooth connection is not good with android (sometime it's connecting, sometimes it will
never connect). I thought the guy would have developped a dedicated app, considering the apk are
freely given by the brand of the slate for 3 years, but not at all. A poorly made video without link
to buy the whiteboard either... "Go to a dollar store...".
If you find and buy all the
stuff, you'll get a non professionnal impresion device, only good to do the trick to your friends,
at home... Non professionnal because the android app works really bad, the app can close without
reason during a show, and you can lost connection anytime.
The only good idea in the video
is for the gaffed marker. Curious to know if it's work better on iphone...

I put together my white board and it works like a charm. I used it last night and it killed! As for
the quality of the video, it left a little to be desired. The audio is bad and there were no close
up shots on how to disassemble the hardware. This would have been helpful. But once I got my board
made, it works very well and I love it!
I finally got around to finishing my whiteboard yesterday and am very happy with how it all works.
It took a while to find the right whiteboard but after contacting Ian he sent me links to boards
that would work for under $6. I ordered the Amazon one and it works great.
I am using the
Samsung Galaxy note 5 and the app works well. Sometimes it takes a while to connect to the bluetooth
( this would be done preshow ) but once connected it works great. The distance is impressive as
well. The DVD is basic but it tells you exactly what you need to know. I will be performing this on
cruise ships and am very excited to try it out in a live show.
This is a great instructional video.
Yes, if you like taking electronics apart and tinkering
and going thru lots of trial and error you don’t need to buy this.
If you want something that
meets very specific needs or you want a finished product, then you don’t need to buy this.
BUT...if you want to see how someone has successfully built a device like this, that has worked
well for him and feel confident that you can make one too without a lot of effort and worry it won’t
work, then this deserves a 5 star review.
Ian goes thru everything at a good pace. He cover
contraction, tips, options and even some routines which are really good.
I don’t think
this is limited to a slate only. Once you know what to do you can use this design approach to best
fit your needs. But I have to say, that the small dollar store whiteboard is very unassuming and
looks like it couldn’t be a gimmicked device. You don’t need a special pen nor drawing board.
Although I haven’t built mine yet, I feel confident this will be fairly easy to do and will work out
fine for my needs.
This is great. Highly recommended and if you wan't an electronic Impression pad then this is a top
