Hi,

If you have the right components (good IR pen/original Wiimote) and placed the Wiimote at the optimum position, screen sizes of about 2m and above in diagonal should work fine.

For very large screens, you will need to place the Wiimote as close as possible to the screen by ensuring high tracking utilization. If tracking is bad even with the right components, you can use two Wiimotes to improve the tracking utilization.

From my experience, screens with the size of an actual whiteboard height works well with little need for ensuring high tracking utilization. However, with very large screens with the size of almost the entire wall, you will need to take time and effort to get good tracking.

Hi,

Maybe you guys should read this .....

http://glovepie.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=523


Alternatively, for the programming free method, run FreeTrack 2.2 side-by-side with your application and use the FreeTrack camera view and sensitivity (threshold) slider to improve your IR Tracking.

I suggest opening FreeTrack AFTER your your main application, as it reinitialises the Wiimote control registers to the more sensitive base settings.

The same applies if you close the application and reopen it again.


Good Luck.

Thanks.

Thanks guys,

This consider technical part already, anyway i will try to test this out to get more sensitive signal.

Hi,

You are making a screen with the size of 6.6meters?

If that is the case, you will need to make your own customized solution with multiple Wiimotes.

Regarding the IR sensor's sensitivity, the maximum sensitivity level should be set by default in Smoothboard.

Hi,

Smoothboard works with 2 Wiimotes.

As your screen is very large, you may need to do some experimentation first.
