University Gets Bullet Proof Whiteboards

can stop bullets.

The high-tech tablet — which hangs on a hook, measures 18 by 20 inches and comes in
pink, blue and green — can be used as a personal shield for professors under
attack, according to the company that makes it, and a portable writing pad in
quieter times.
