The SMART Table, that Microsoft Surface-esque multitouch table specifically made for kids, is now out and making its way into classrooms. Each table comes with six applications out of the box and costs $US8000.
Teachers can customise activities on the tablet by using the SMART Table Toolkit on their PC or Mac. The new activities are then saved onto a USB bracelet and plugged into the table for activity synchronisation. Smart Tech is also offering free apps and activities for download on its education website.
Not a bad buy if you’re a teacher (the education website also helps you request grants to buy one), or if you’re just a parent that wants to seriously one-up that little Leapfrog Crammer the Jones’ got their kid. [Smart Tech]
