OK-- I know how he did it-- putting the projector under the table and the wiimote above it, but what is he using on his finger?  Is it a DIY (do it yourself) device or are the fingertip IR devices you can purchase? 

I work with children with special needs, and they all love to drum on their desks during class.  A program like this could really help to channel their love of music and their rhythmic skills!

Any information that you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

I used an IR light source strapped to my finger with a push button switch to activate mouse clicks. The wiimote can track the position of my finger using Johnny Lee's famous Wiimote software: http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~johnny/project...

I guess my question was more along the lines of how would I go about making that light switch and clicker?

Im guessing he had the IR LED's pointing up and had a simple switch on the underside of his finger... then when he touched the surface it would turn on and he could also perform dragging by holding down, etc.
