For educators who have lost their Interactive Pens, the Replacement Pen keeps the interactive lessons going without having to purchase another IS-01 system.

Educational technology company IPEVO's IS-01 Interactive Whiteboard System can turn most any existing whiteboard or projector surface into an interactive whiteboard. While IS-01 has been embraced by the education community as an affordable alternative to much more expensive interactive whiteboards, educators called for a way to replace IS-01's slim Interactive Pen when lost or misplaced. In response, IPEVO is offering the Replacement Pen. The Replacement Pen is identical to the original IS-01 Interactive Pen, which can now be replaced without having to buy another IS-01 system. The Replacement Pen is available from the IPEVO Online Store at http://www.ipevo.com.
Two devices make up the IS-01 Interactive Whiteboard System: the Sensor Cam and the Interactive Pen. Infrared signals are given off by the Interactive Pen when it is held and operated at the whiteboard surface. The Sensor Cam – which is positioned facing the surface – then picks up and interprets these signals, translating them into cursor movements and mouse clicks. Educators or students at the whiteboard can thus control a computer's operating system as well as software applications. Projected teaching material becomes interactive material. The Sensor Cam connects via standard USB and is compatible with either PC or Mac computers.
The full range of mouse operations are available, thanks to a button on the Interactive Pen's shaft as well as a contact-sensitive tip. Left and right clicks, double clicks, mouse drags and cursor control can all be accomplished with simple operations. The Interactive Pen is battery-operated and requires two AAA batteries. As for the Sensor Cam, this small device measures only a few inches high and can be placed on a table or projector. And with an included sticker, the Sensor Cam can also be placed on a ceiling-mounted projector. Calibration to ensure accuracy between Sensor Cam and Interactive Pen is accomplished with a small software program that takes only a handful of steps.
It should be noted that the Replacement Pen is intended for use with the IS-01 Interactive Whiteboard System as a replacement accessory when the pen is lost. It is not a standalone product. Additionally, the IS-01 does not support multi-touch functions. Two Interactive Pens cannot be used with IS-01 at the same time. Only one Interactive Pen can be properly operated at a time.
"For educators who have lost their Interactive Pens, the Replacement Pen keeps the interactive lessons going without having to purchase another IS-01 system," said Royce Hong, CEO and big head of design for IPEVO. "Particularly in classrooms with younger and excitable learners who love experimenting with the Interactive Pen as a 'magic wand,' it's certainly possible to misplace the pen. With the Replacement Pen, the Sensor Cam has a new partner that works in identical fashion to the original Interactive Pen."
The IS-01 Interactive Whiteboard System, as well as the Replacement Pen for the IS-01, are both available for purchase at the IPEVO Online Store at http://www.ipevo.com.
