Hi there..

I'm Univ student in Korea and I wanna make this whiteboard project without wiimote.

actually, I already bought IR cam from http://www.mcnex.com/

and I got a datasheet for it, but the thing is..

I can't find any difference between this cam and other cam module

they said it is IR cam, though.


furthermore, i can't get a connector to use this module

I attach a picture of connet pin of the IR cam.

this is 24 pin and so tiny that i can't fine connector.


thanks a lot.

Nosu from Korea

I don't know of any 24-pin connector; it seems like a much better idea to use a Wiimote because it's Bluetooth-enabled and can easily send to a USB receiver, but if you can make one with your own parts, it's likely cheaper and has the potential to be mass-produced (which I'd love to see).

Experiment with the connection to see what data is output. I'm no expert, but maybe you can make your own circuitry to react to the different pins' currents? That data sheet is your best hope, or maybe you should contact the manufacturer on that website.

If you scan (or translate) the data sheet, we can probably better help you : )

if u can change the wiimote lib i think u can start it using IR cam i also think tat using wiimote would be better
