Collaboration for a WBS using a smartboard

I'm a PM. I need to hold WBS sessions with technical teams to drive out requirements, which then are used to create the project plan. There are usually between 5 and 15 people working on a WBS.

My question has 3 parts (I'd love if the answer was yes to all :)):

1 - Is there a way to use an electronic smartboard with MindManager (Not just visually, but been able to physically touch the smartboard - move/edit/delete items on the board itself?)

2 - Can the sessions described above be carried out without connecting to the web edition of Mindjet? (i.e Just on a desktop connected to a central server..eg...Sharepoint perhaps?)

3 - The Utopia for me would be a large meeting room that contains a smartboard. My technical project teams can go to this room, log on to and start creating (or if we've already created one - editing) a WBS/Mindmap on just the smartboard itself. We come to the end after a number of iterations, we have a complete map, I pump this into MS Project and I start populating further my plan. Can I do this? Can this be a reality?

1) Yes (this was already possible in MIndjet version 5)
2) Yes (Yes if you have the Mindjet desktop and Sharepoint it works perfect. It gets even better if you use Mindjet On-premise, that allows you to keep everything behind your own firewall)
3) Yes (You could even do it from multiple locations and collate all WBS in one overview Mindmap and export to MS Project if you want to. Don't forget the power of MIndjet Social Task management to make your life a lot better)

Why don't you try it. Just to see the proof?

Great news.

This answer fills me with joy. To increase this, can you provide me with any examples (please please) of individuals or organisations that are using MindManager in this way?
