This is my version of the Wiimote table including some explanations and details about the tricky parts which you need to consider.
Have fun!

Awesome set up Wolf.
Another alternative if your data projector is already ceiling mounted is to point it down and place melamime coated masonite on the floor or on the children's desks. I need 4 of their desks. The masonite measures 1200mm x 915mm. A great size for many children to gather around. When finished with it, it takes just seconds to put the masonite away. The kids have their conventional desks back. I re-angle the data projector back to the wall position, recalibrate and have an IWB again in less than a minute.
Total cost - $10.13 for the melamime coated masonite. The enthusiasm on the kids faces when learning using the table - PRICELESS!!

Cheers,
Joe

I just hope more educators can get on board with this idea (no pun intended). The novelty of this table really engages the children in their learning in such a powerful way. It adds another dimenision to their learning that they really want to stay on task and want to learn more.
Cheers,
