The design of the MimioClassroom product suite gives a pleasing impression through simple, classic arcs and soft surfaces and edges. From the MimioClassroom centrepiece – the MimioTeach interactive system – throughout the rest of the product family, the design conveys easy-to-use, intuitive technology that can help educators simply teach. The entire family is outfitted in high-gloss white, accented with light grey rubber, giving the suite a robust yet unassuming appearance. Each tool features only the most necessary control elements, connectors, and hardware components. Only the buttons required for data entry are shown, reducing the risk of user errors. Such frugal design minimises distraction and lets the user focus on the essentials. Elements of traditional teaching materials, such as the board-mounted pen tray and stylus pen, help make these interactive technologies familiar and comfortable.
