Problem: You need to write/draw something on a dry-erase board many times.
My solution would be a Dry erase stamp. Basically, this would be a rubber stamp (baked) of what you are writing (backwards of course), and an ink pad that has dry-erase ink.
Problems with the solution:
Dry erase ink dries very quickly. In order to make an ink pad with it, it would have to stay wet longer.
Second: If you don't have a stamp of what you need to put on the board, you have to write it. This could be solved by using something like the half-baked "Dynamic Stamp" (link) so you could design on the computer, add dry erase ink, and stamp as needed.
Dynamic Stamp and ink sold seperately. Computer not included.
A Stamp that changes what is stamped via computer. [wolstech, Dec 01 2006]

be done with a regular chalkboard. It
makes sense. +
||I don't think having to stop and pick up a stamp or to make one would save you any time.
