Hi everyone,

This is going to seem the simplest question in the World for most people on this site!!

I was wondering what software I use in order to make the whiteboard? I've made the IR pens, my wiimote is paired with the blue soleil bluetooth device. I've downloaded the whiteboard software of johnny lees software, but after calibrating the pens (touching each corner of the screen) nothing happens - there is not white screen in which 2 write with the pens. Do I need to download something else?

Any advice would be great!!

Thanks

Hi,

If you are looking for a full-features whiteboard application, you should try Smoothboard.

Smoothboard has a Wiimote connect tool (if you are using the Microsoft Bluetooth Stack), and built-in screen annotation features. You are able to write on top of your desktop directly and also control your PowerPoint presentations.

You can download it from http://www.smoothboard.net/downloads

Hi Gethin,

Smoothboard is a close-source software.

If you would like to learn how to code, you may take the look at the Wiimote Whiteboard chapter in the following book:

Thanks for the advice.

I'm going to use visual studio  to edit the code written my Johnny Lee. Do you have any idea on how I can import and image into the code so it appears on the whiteboard?

Also, Is there anyway of getting Johnny Lee's software to appear the same as smoothboard? This is, a white background in which the user can use the LED pens to write on the board?

Basically, I want a white background, with a logo in the top corner, and possibly a part where users can select different colours to use when scribbling on the whiteboard.

Any advice would be great,

Thanks!

I think it would be helpful. Smoothboard has a Wiimote connect tool if you are using the Microsoft Bluetooth Stack, and built-in screen annotation features. It is really amazing.
