Magnetic interface widgets for whiteboard prototyping

Not long ago, you could buy a magnetic interface design toolkit. Now, they are back - this time big enough to use on a whiteboard (or your fridge) for collaborative on-the-fly prototyping.

The magnetic interface widgets have a special coated surface so that you can write on them with a non-permanent maker and easily wipe them off again. They come in a nice laptop sized case with around 100 magnets.
