Afterglow is a new system that creates an interactive environment with a laser pointer on a projection screen. The laser pointer can be used as a drawing tool to emphasize items on the screen and can also be used to control the cursor like a mouse. Afterglow also has built in slide controls for PowerPoint allowing the user to control their presentation using the laser pointer. Sounds cool, but the $1980.00 price tag will probably scare most people away.

Seems that the system is a rip off, a camera and some simple software could easily do the same trick. And you don’t even need a decent camera.
With smart whiteboards, PC (with touch screen) to screen projector or interface, even plain low-tech showing a presentation on a whiteboard and writing on it… I am not sure I see the market for a $2000 device that does this little.
Although if I had access to one, I bet you could do a real kick-butt presentation!
Pretty cool technology, although the pricing seems a bit steep for the corporate market. I saw an ABC News interview, and it looks like they’re targeting the TV market with telestrators. John Madden’s device he was using was upwards of $20~30K.
This is definitely a cool device to make a huge impact in your presentations, i agree though that $2000 might be a little too much, but its still a definitely one of the more unique technology.
