Whiteboards are a great tool for brainstorming and problem-solving, but today’s whiteboards are big and heavy with limited portability. Good ideas can come from anywhere, anytime, not just during your scheduled brainstorm meetings. With that in mind, ButterflyBoard Project set out in 2013 to solve this problem. After countless prototypes and trials, today’s ButterflyBoard is a carefully designed, portable, and flexible tool. Your vote will enable users to be creative anytime, anywhere.
