For LabQuest 2
The LabQuest Viewer, order code LQ-VIEW, $79 allows you to view and project the LabQuest 2 screen.

For original LabQuest
You can project the LabQuest screen using a free software product called the LabQuest Emulator. The Emulator runs on your computer, and looks just like the LabQuest, including the screen and the hardware buttons on the front panel. The screen responds to mouse clicks, just the way the LabQuest responds to stylus taps.

The emulator will collect data if a LabQuest with sensors is connected to the computer. In this way an instructor can demonstrate all of the functionality of the LabQuest to a group of students. Demonstrations of the LabQuest Emulator using an interactive white board are particularly effective.

The emulator supports the same sensors as LabQuest App except for the internal microphone, USB sensors (e.g. spectrometers, Vernier GPS, and the Mini GC), and the Wireless Dynamic Sensor System. The emulator includes two virtual sensors that can be used to demonstrate the functionality of the internal microphone and spectrometers.

Download the emulator from

The emulator runs on PCs running XP, Vista, and Windows 7. It can also run on a Mac running XP, Vista, or Windows 7, but is not available in a native Mac OS X version.
