If only I had my Wiimote at home to test, will have to wait until Monday!  Angry

This looks awesome. I think you have just taken the lead for the most functional Wiimote Whiteboard Application.

I look forward to testing  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

2 tumbs up Boon Jin

I did a quick test on the screen of my PC.  Works like a charm so far and the ALT-TAB function, which is for me a very nice functionality works great.

User interface is very workable and easy to use.

What I particularly like is having an idea what the Wiimote sees for optimizing the tracking area. It would be equally interesting, if possible, to have an indicator of how much sensitivity the Wiimote has to help selecting a good sensitivity level.

Coming Tuesday I have a good possibility to field test it.  I think I will put some post-its around the projected area with ALT, TAB, and enter on it.  I'm looking forward to it, the more since I built myself an IR pen that has the switch in the tip (press the pen on the board = IR led is on, remove the pressure on the board = IR led is off).

Again, great work Boon Jin!!!

Thanks for your quick feedback.
Hopefully it works well for you.  Smiley

Regarding the sensitivity indicator, I might include it in the next version. However, I have difficulty testing it as I do not have a projector, and placing the Wiimote near the screen (using a small screen). Maybe I can include just a slight feedback regarding the blob size of the IR source and also some calculations to determine the consistency of the detection of the IR source.

Thanks again for the suggestion!

Great!!! software!!!
Calibration is Advanced Settings is very helpfull and the clickareas are very usefull.
Would it be possible to make versions in other languages (Dutch in my case)?

I was thinking about a more 'realtime' calibration: suppose I have a frame of some kind with four IR LED's at the corners.
The size should fit the calibration area on the whiteboard.
Would it then possible to position the Wiimote while the calibration screen is continuously updated so that you can easily find the best position?
I understand that the Wii mote can detect 4 sources of IR LED's. Perhaps an idea for a separate calibration tool?


Thanks again for this software.
I will further test and report if necessary.

I've watched and read with excited anticipation of the development of Boon Jin's whiteboard modifications and improvements. I think Boon Jin should be rewarded with his own projector so he can get the full effect of what he is revolutionizing. I will gladly contribute...

BoonJin, this looks amazing.

The one thing that I'd love to see implemented in a windows environment is the ability to use multiple wiimotes.  It has been implemented in both the Linux version and the Mac (Java) version, but I haven't seen it in a good ol' windows environment.

Basically, the problem is this:  I use my wiimote whiteboard in my high school classroom... mostly in my Chemistry Honors classes.  My wiimote is mounted centrally on the ceiling and does a pretty good job "seeing" the screen.  However, sometimes students will stand directly in front of where they are trying to write blocking the IR camera completely. I'd like to be able to have 2 wiimotes "seeing" the screen at all times, so even if one is blocked by a student the other will see it.

Here's an example picture.

Thanks for your positive responses!

About localizing the software to different languages, I think it can be done when the software is stable and ready to be released officially. Will need a lot of help with this.  Cheesy

The real time calibration method will be useful but requires a bit more work on the setup. The IR diodes have to be placed at the corners of the screen and activated by a switch which might be a bit awkward. hehe. The programming part of this will not be difficult as the I can retrieve the four IR sources in real time.
I will certainly add this to the 'todo' list.  Tongue

By testing the software and providing suggestions, you have already contributed a lot. Many thanks to all!

Once the application is stable, we can start promoting it to be used as an end-user application. Smiley

Hi!

My original aim in developing the new wiimote whiteboard is actually to support two Wiimotes. Smiley However, I found that the usability of the wiimote whiteboard can be first improved by having toggles. This can allow presenters to use the whiteboard without the need of going to the keyboard or using a mouse.

Next, I will be trying to do the multiple (two) Wiimote support like you have mentioned. Most probably I will just provide some basic functions first. Such as the second Wiimote only is used when it detects an IR source and the primary Wiimote does not.

Boon Jin

PS: How did you mount it to the ceiling? How do you pair and power the Wiimote?
Thanks!!

Borrowed a friend’s wiimote, works awesome the settings and functions are very user friendly.

Given end of term, I won't have a few classes in a row to test its stability. Given last few versions have been very stable I don't this will be a big issue, although I think you need a 64bit tester to check no 64bit issues.

Richwhite http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lR3TriDV1kghas put out a video where he is also using the wiimote as a whiteboard and application controller. I am thinking the following idea could combine functions into one application:

In the main window in the cursor section have a toggle option "Calibrated Tracking Area" or "All Tracking Area". If calibrated tracking area is checked then as is. If all tracking area is checked it works the same as Jason Smiths Presenter application.

In the Advanced setting window is a third tab "Keyboard Controls" this tab allows users to custom set each wiimote keyboard (and accelerometer too if poss) settings.

This then only leaves the connection issue? Do you think the Java connection can be ported to yours? This is very stable and appears to connect across all platforms including widcomm.

Once again great work   Grin

I have not used the Wiimote Presenter yet. Can you explain more about the All Tracking Area option?

Thanks!

I have not used the Wiimote Presenter yet. Can you explain more about the All Tracking Area option?

Rather than a static remote & dynamic IR-Source in a calibrated zone (your whiteboard setup)

The full tracking area is sensitive and is not calibrated. I have a perminatly on IR-Source sitting on my whitebaord ledge.

I then hold the wiimote (the buttons are set to send specific key strokes). I use as a Powerpoint Presenter. Thus I can press buttons to run mouse clicks & keybaord strokes as per my settings.

If I want to control the mouse I point the wiimote at the white board and it moves the mouse based on hand movement relitive to the perminant IR-source.

Best way to explain is as a reverse whiteboard. The IR-source is static and the wiimote is dynamic. Movement always controls the cursor but need to push a button to acheive mouse clicks (left/right/middle).
