I am currently exploring the use of a Wii Interactive whiteboard, and I have a few questions.

First is there an application that will allow this to work with a laptop using Windows 8?

Second, I have no idea how to calibrate my pen to Smoothboard Air.

Third, the four lights on the bottom of my wii remote are continuously blinking, is this what it should be doing?

Hi,

Smoothboard Air allows you to connect multiple mobile devices to the computer for real-time collaboration but it does not have Wiimote whiteboard feature.

You may want to try Smoothboard Air with Duo instead. It has the features of Smoothboard Air and the Wiimote functionality.

It can be found at http://www.smoothboard.net/wiimotewhiteboard

Your advice was great and solved both of my problems, however, I do have a new one.  The pen I created uses an infrared LED and a switch that I turn on only once. (I fear this may be the problem) 

When I go to calibrate the pen, it goes through all four before I can touch the board. 

What is creating this problem/?

Hi,

The infrared pen used for the wiimote whiteboard should use a momentary switch where it is switched on only when the button is pressed and switched off when released.

You may try replacing the switch yourself or buy a ready made IR Pen from our partners.
