CrunchGear's Uberprize: A SMART Board 685ix interactive white board


This week we’re going to go a little crazy. We’ll still have daily giveaways but we’re going to offer you the chance to totally go nuts and win a SMART Board 685ix short throw magical whiteboard with installation included. What’s that you say? What will I do with a whiteboard? Good question!

Heck if I know, but it’s way cool. But here’s a short description:

Experience interactivity like never before with the SMART Board 685ix interactive whiteboard system. As the world’s first ultra-short throw interactive whiteboard system, the 685ix combines an ultra-short-throw projector with a widescreen interactive whiteboard. The 685ix offers you unparalleled image quality, a precise touch experience and a large interactive surface for teaching and learning.

The system’s ultra-short-throw projector, the UX60, virtually eliminates shadows, glare and distracting projector light. It is positioned directly above the interactive whiteboard, projecting crisp, bright images from only 12″ (30.5 cm) away. And because the 685ix’s interactive whiteboard is widescreen, it has 20% more working space than a standard board.

Presumably this is good for your office or school, so feel free to enter on behalf of those institutions. There are a few basic rules:

* SMART will ship a Board to the winner’s school or business, and will be responsible for shipping, installation, and warranty issues, in accordance with all applicable laws. SMART will ship the Board within seven days of confirmation of the winner’s contact information.
The contest prize provided by SMART includes:
* One Board with SMART Notebook software;
* On-site professional installation services for the Board; and
* Shipping to any location in Canada or the United States.
* Eligibility – The contest is open to Canadian and US residents only. Participants must enter on behalf of their Canadian or US business or educational institution and the prize will be awarded to the business or institution, not the individual.
* The retail value of the Board is $5,999 USD.

Special note: This is USA/Canada only. Sorry, Paraguay!

How do you win? Comment on five upcoming SMART Board contest posts, including this one. This means we will post one reminder per day. You will have to comment on all five. Remember to check back here every day. We won’t post on TechCrunch every day. On Friday we will check to see all entrants who entered five times and pick one at random. Easy enough? OK! Get cracking!

UPDATE – We have a winner! Lori won after submitting five comments on each of the five days. Thanks for playing!
