CNN’s Magic Wall

KingBoard_2.5.jpgThe Washingon Post’s Paul Farhi has the story behind the wall…CNN’s Magic Wall. Farhi writes, “The Magic Wall — its inventor calls it the Multi-Touch Collaboration Wall — might be the gee-whizziest TV-news gizmo since the animated weather map. It’s certainly a quantum leap from the dry-erase board that NBC’s Tim Russert whipped out on Election Night in 2000 to explain the confounding returns from Florida.”

CNN election chief David Bohrman “spotted The Wall last fall while trawling the aisles of a Texas trade show for government and military-intelligence contractors. A demonstration, he said, ‘stopped me in my tracks. Once you see it, you get it instantly.’”
