Since the beginning of the pandemic, workers have flocked to InVision Freehand as a replacement for their in-office whiteboard sessions. Now, as professionals around the world return to the office their perspective–and needs–have evolved. We interviewed thousands of customers and many of them said the same thing: “I find myself yearning for the tactile experience of a whiteboard, with the simplicity of sharing on a Zoom call.” 

With Freehand, InVision lifted digital collaboration and productivity for hybrid and remote teams up to new plateaus. Now, we’re ready to present a revolutionary new way to realize digital collaboration that is so real you can touch it.


With the world’s first Tactile Digital Whiteboard System, FreehandsOn, any remote or hybrid team can bring the natural, instinctual flow of hands-on work to any virtual meeting. With our proprietary analog stylus, you can draw, write, and point. You can even undo with a swipe of your finger. The surface is compatible with sticky notes, magnets, and even stickers. Hold the FreehandsOn in front of any webcam and your team’s ready to hold the future of your company’s success in the palm of their hands.

Optimize your workflow with the FreehandsOn HandsFree peripheral

Ready to take Tactile Digital Whiteboarding to the next level? With the additional HandsFree peripheral you can affix the FreehandsOn to any laptop for unconstrained, two-handed operation. 

Simply use the HandsFree to position the FreehandsOn in view of your laptop’s webcam.

The benefits of Two-Handed Tactile Digital Whiteboarding include:

  • Limitless Hand Gestures. Bring your ideas to life with wilder, more expressive hand gestures. Say someone just contributed brilliantly, hit them with a “finger gun, finger gun, blow the smoke, double thumbs up, wink, wink” maneuver! With the FreehandsOn HandsFree system, the entire lexicon of professional hand gesturing is in your hands.
  • Flexible Marker-to-Hand Alignment. With both hands free, marker-to-hand alignment supports both right- and left-handed operation. 

CAUTION: Users may experience a significant weight imbalance when using the FreehandsOn HandsFree that will cause your laptop monitor to shut itself under the added weight of an entire whiteboard and the sturdy steel construction of the HandsFree mount. No problem! Simply use one of your HandsFree free hands to hold the monitor open!

With FreehandsOn remote collaboration is as simple as 1,2,3,4

My coworkers are having a hard time seeing all the details on my FreehandsOn. What can I do?

There are many potential factors that contribute to a degraded sharing experience. Please insert the support CD-rom included with your purchase to run the troubleshooting wizard. 

If your issue is not resolved through the troubleshooting wizard, please contact our support team to schedule an onsite visit with one of our licensed technicians.

How do I reduce the glare on my FreehandsOn?

For those sharing in direct sunlight, glare may be an obstacle to sharing your whiteboard. We recommend positioning the brightest light source directly behind you, to ensure there is no glare on your FreehandsOn.

Everything I share is backwards for my coworkers, is my FreehandsOn defective?

Some webcams and video chat software mirror your image on video. When this occurs, simply write backwards for your coworkers. This has the added benefit of engaging new areas of your brain, sparking new and innovative ideas.

I ordered my FreehandsOn 15 weeks ago and still haven’t received it.

While this is not a question, we understand your concern, and are deeply committed to fulfilling all orders of FreehandsOn. Due to supply chain disruptions, all orders of FreehandsOn are delayed until mid 2023.*

*Dates subject to change.

Can I get a refund?

All sales are final, however in select cases we can issue a store credit for use on any other FreehandsOn models or accessories.

Is this real?

Happy April 1st!
