Watch this! Microsoft Research uses real-time sketching on an interactive whiteboard (video)
Microsoft's Research team is always coming up with something new and exiciting and this time they have come up with an idea called "SketchInsight." SketchInsight is simply an interactive whiteboard system used for storytelling and you can use real-time sketching as the data. You can create personalized and expressive data charts with ease. The idea is simple, you simply sketch an example and SketchInsight automatically completes the chart by synthesizing data from example sketches. Pretty cool stuff. Check out the showcase video below.
