Post-It dry erase sheets

A stack of self-adhesive, dry-erase sheets

Sheets (of any size) with a self-adhesive strip on one or more edges you can use as a dry-erase board, anywhere, anytime. A transparent version would be useful if you wanted to overlay an existing sheet. Probably sold in a stack, like Post-It notes.

This has several advantages over traditional dry-erase boards - especially those designated for communal use - including being able to save any work in progress by simply taking the sheet you're working on back to your office after the meeting in the conference room.
No more running out of room - just tack on another sheet and keep on working.
No more trying to sand off that red marker someone wrote with back in 1992 - just throw the sheet away.

Magic White Board http://www.magicwhiteboard.co.uk/
As seen on TV [MikeOliver, Sep 29 2009]

       This very idea was on 'Dragon's Den' (in the UK) a while back.
It seemed like a good idea to me at the time, but I don't think any of the Dragons invested!

       Ah, there you go. I was thinking of a pad - like Post-It notes - but a roll is as good.

       Great idea! I would use it in my office and at home.

       Yes - the digital camera is good for when you've finished. The sheets are nice because they're easy to work on.   

       A kind of branch idea would be to put some ink sensors into the whiteboard to capture your images. Digital camera images of whiteboards are not usually good.   

       Unless you use a permanent camera, which was set up nicely, and linked to the office network, along with a projector. These things have been done surely...

       You are surely correct. My old office had whiteboards with digital camera's mounted on poles at he top. You could save to a network drive, email the snapshot to any email address or (and this is showing how old it is...) save it to a 3.5" floppy disk.
