Project Ideas / Re: Quiz show buzzers???

While student teaching last spring I used an audience response system (called Qwizdom) which integrated with keynote for mac. You basically put together the presentation and the software treated the title as the question for each slide and the subsequent bullets as responses. The responses were collected at the end of each question for every rf remote in use. The program could display graphs after a question so you knew when to stop and explain a concept when they weren't "getting it."

I found a possible open source solution:  They sell the hardware. Perhaps this could be modified to work with the Wiimotes? They say their API is opensource as well. I can't seem to find where they posted the actual source code however :(


There appears to be an opensource project at sourceforge.

I hope that this gets added to the white board program soon. The kids in my class have difficulty decompressing the momentary switch before they remove their hand. They also have difficulty staying out of the camera's line of sight.
