Multi-Touch Whiteboards

Both Promethean and Smart boast a board with dual users, but what is the state of multi-touch whiteboards? The Promethean Activboard 500 Pro looks like the real deal with four simultaneous users. The SMART Board 800 series allows two users. With Lion and Win 8 both going whole hog for tablets and other multi-touch enabled devices, whiteboards should be evolving with them.
I regularly swipe, pinch, and tap the Eno boards at school, and the board contemplates me with humor. “Silly human,” I can hear it think, “I am not an iPad.”
“Well, you should be,” I think right back. “Not only that, but your pens should work much better than they do!”
