Hi,

Whiteboard software can refer to a Wii/Wiimote Whiteboard software or an interactive whiteboard software. The Wii / Wiimote Whiteboard software normally refers to software that uses a Wiimote that turns your screen surface into an interactive whiteboard surface such as Johnny Lee's Wiimote Whiteboard: http://www.youtube.com/watch?gl=AU&hl=en-GB&v=5s5EvhHy7eQ (http://www.youtube.com/watch?gl=AU&hl=en-GB&v=5s5EvhHy7eQ)

On the other hand interactive whiteboard software can refer to a software which utilizes the usage of an interactive whiteboard as a human interaction interface.

Smoothboard is an advance wiimote whiteboard software that aims to provide users ability to turn their screen into a full-featured interactive whiteboard with minimal fuss. Smoothboard will automatically handle the connectivity with the Wiimote, allows immediate screen annotation and more.

The Floating Toolbar provides full control of your presentations whether it is for a teacher teaching in a classroom or even for business.



Smartboard software may refer to SMART Technologies' SMART Board software such as SMART Notebook.

So, now having a Wii remote and an ir pen I just have to download smoothboard software and that's it? just like that? There's no need to download the original Johny's software?
