2x Wii Remotes (IR pen whiteboard camera and presenter)
4x IR pens (see below)
Dell 2100MP Projector
Fujitsu Tablet PC
Bluetooth Dongle
3volt AC to DC adapter (static wiimote power source)
speaker cable wire

SmoothBoard 0.46
various textbook CD-ROM interactive Flash based

The setup:

Note: the bungee is just there for piece of mind.   The projector is securely mounted by thee counter screws.

Wired sensor bar for presenter WiiRemote (above whiteboard)

AC to DC powered WiiRemote

IR Pen v1 (radioshack momentary switch and LED)

IR Pen v2 #1 (Vishay TSAL 6400, circuit  momentary switch)

IR Pen v2 #2

IR Touch Pen (experimental)
modded push key chain incandescent light bulb

LED  moded to light build screw hardware

This does not work except for clicking, the dragging action causes the IR led circuit to not always be complete and the  light flickers.  This current configuration just does not work with wiring, although clicking is great.

The sensor bar it's just a led bar that you place over the projection screen ( so that you can use a wiimote in your hand as a mouse and assign different functions to each button of the wiimote. But I'm not sure, I didn't try it.

Now I have a question for bubka, how do you connect the wiimote to PC? Do you have to press SYNC or A+B button up there or did you make a remote button with the cable or someqhere else?

 :Dthanks katutxakur for giving me an idea.... and you have just asked an interesting question, cause I also understand you have to press the two buttons to start sync, however, maybe you only do this operation once.... don't you think?

BTW bubka, would you mind answering the questions? ???
