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 put this together by following the instructions. The instructions were clear and easy to follow,
and the idea is great.
As for the device, it generally works. However, I had a snafu where
the devices lost their connection during the show, causing a failure. So I would suggest coming up
with a failsafe test before you hand out the gimmicked board. If the connection is lost, you can
realize the problem and go to your backup option... say a peek or force or whatever.

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...

The idea is pure beauty! The actual act behind it is exceptional. The execution on putting it all
together is an absolute nightmare. Please know you are going to spend a lot of money on this. I
absolutely love the concept behind it and it actually will work 100%! But there are so many little “
gotcha’s“ I would have preferred to spend 10 times this for the completed product. I literally
purchased everything this requires and in the middle of the assembly process realized there is too
many things that will harm the actual performance. Excellent idea but probably 10% of the people
watching will actually use this. My apologies to the creator it is beautiful Magic, however the ask
in this is exceptionally difficult. Please sell the completed product.
Creative idea! Thanks for sharing.
I gave 4 stars because I think the video should be updated
with newer information to make the DIY more current.
With the electronics used and the app, can the writing appear on an applewatch?
I bought th required tablet for £50 and have made a full working board inc this download for under
£100 - I'm very pleased not to have to spend $1200
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.
