Hi all,
Im new to the wiimote scene, ive been following it for a long time but finally jumped in.
With regard to the multitouch whiteboard/screem/projected display, particularly the 'IR LED Pens' just found this cool kit on Maplin and with a few obvious mods i think i can see it being a cool way to make the pens + relativley cheap.
Probably only feasable in the UK though.
heres the link

Rock on and I hope to be posting more.
Cheers

Looks like with a quick Led change will do the trick. Use a Resistor calulator to check you have the right resistance. The colour bands will tell you the resistance on the board.

This looks handy to fit an IR-Led into any form factro.

Welcome to the project.

This is interesting but the price is more then I charge for my entire completed Mark 5 IR pen.
