Deekit May Be the Brainstorming Tool You Need

If you’re someone who’s like me and is tired of spending money buying countless whiteboards for your projects, Deekit might be for you.

Deekit is an online tool designed for just about everyone from developers and engineers to students and freelance designers. The concept focuses almost exclusively on simplicity to allow you to work with your team on a virtual whiteboard and sketch out your ideas. It’s incredibly efficient with basic functions like drawing, image embedding, and text input, but it goes a bit further than that with pre-designed templates customized for business models, roadmaps, and brainstorming. For people like myself who love to stay up to date, it even has an activity log that shows what changes your team members have made.

The possibilities are limitless in what you can do with this sort of design technology and I think it’ll be a great help to my own design team considering how often we’re uploading images on our forums. The browser-based application was recently released into open Beta and you can try it out easily by going over to their website right here, so if you’re working in a team-based environment this tool could be quite useful for your everyday workflow. All you’ll need is a Facebook, Google, or Microsoft account and you’re ready to get started!

3D Printed Whiteboard Clock Writes Out Current Time

21-year-old software engineer Maurice Bos has built a mechanical clock that writes the current time on a whiteboard every minute, each time erasing the previous time.

Bos, who works for Google in Zürich, built the clock using a 3D printed arm to grasp a whiteboard pen. The pen, receiving instructions from a tiny microcontroller, is responsible for both writing the current time each minute and erasing the previous one, with the help of a detachable wiping attachment that fits over the nib.

Bos has posted a detailed summary of how his whiteboard clock works here.
