Microsoft is in the process of developing an interactive self-sketching whiteboard called Microsoft SketchInsight which will act like a Digital Canvas and will be used to complete diagrams, sketches and drawings easily with pre-loaded data.

Microsoft will exhibit the prototype as a part of its annual technical festival called Microsoft Research TechFest. Some other projects by Microsoft’s key researchers will also be unveiled at the event.
