DQ reader Ryan D. sent me this in reference to the MIT Sketchboard link I posted earlier today:
The software that the MIT professor is demonstrating is simply the Microsoft Physics Illustrator Powertoy that has been shipped with Tablet PC's for quite a while now.

The real technology he is demonstrating is the input device, essentially turning the whiteboard and projector into a giant tablet device (which is still cool).

I had no idea that Microsoft was shipping a grown-up, sandbox version of The Incredible Machine with their tablet PC's--that almost makes me want to buy one.
