According to market research by Futuresource Consulting, this technologically advanced whiteboard have been utilizing one of every classroom in the world. Considering this, Google develops their own intelligent whiteboard known as Jamboard.

Jamboard running on the same Operative System that of G Suite’s ecosystem. But do we really need this??? I think you probably won’t need this unless you a teacher or company’s executive. Because it’s a hugely powerful device to make things easier like to enhance meeting more effectively or to make brilliant presentations.

This type of systems we have seen it in sci-fiction movies like in Marvel’s Iron Man where Robert Downey Jr. always is seen using some sort of transparent screen monitor technologies to do things faster. But in real time, we have a long way to go to adopt such fictional technology.


WHY JAMBOARD???


Many users want to find out why they have to use this newly launched device if they are already satisfied with their own traditional whiteboard. So here are some important points about Jamboard that you may want to look at it for its better understanding…

1. In the tradition whiteboard, there is a small problem in a multimedia section like images cannot load fast or video still in buffering condition.
2. The main point is they lack G Suite feature. Even if they are more interactive than others, they still don’t have this feature.
3. One of the most embarrassing moment occurs when you realize you cannot connect any storage device to it.

All this problem have already overcome by Google by blessing with Jamboard.
