- How could you define the TSAL5300 is good or working fine?.
- How far from you IR-pen to the wiimote? (I mean the maximum range that works when you writing on the white  board -->> Is it work well with the distance 3-5 m?)
- Did you get all programs work with your pen without any problem?
- Is there any pros or cons from that the TSAL5300?

The reason that I want to ask you because I want to make sure not getting useless thing and save time to search many option.

Thank Ben,

I known it man but :) Do you think if I buy 5 led and pay them near 40 (near 60$)  :P just for doing 1 pen :), you know they crazy because they only sell cheap for whom order over 50 up hehe (Finland is crazy place: high % taxes & everything is expensive than other country :D). I will try my research to find the correct vishay LED in some websites, otherwise I will ask Uncond for help :P. I think his IR-led is also good spec as similar to the tsal6400

Thank for your info Undcond. I tried to order in Kjell websilte, it's very weird that they cost me with a terrible shipping cost :-) about250 SEK for only 10 pack of LED (29SEK) :). Well I had ordered in DealExtreme : 20 leds, 5mm  IR-led,

I have no idea about its spec and I think it 's not good led but for only $2.93 (free shipping) so it's acceptable. I wonder if it is a weak LED, can we make a IR-pen with 2 leds in a series in order to make it strong enough?


IR Pens / Is this possible????

I just saw it on the dealextremer website: the InfraRed IR USB Presenter and its price about $14,40 (free shipping). The thing that make I thinking about that it could work in a range >= 10 meters. Can we using this Presenter for the IR-pen?. Anyone had try this one yet? I wonder if it work with the Wiimote that should be a good deal for us, i.e. avoid making IR-pen :-).

Another question is: can we take out the led inside the the wii sensor bar to make IR-pen?

I don't know my question is repeated or not if yes please block it, thank.

Hi UndCon,

How you can get the IR-led from KEMO because I saw on their website they only sell it to company or the industry only, not for private person. Since you live in Sweden, do you know which places are selling cheap and low delivery cost in Europe?. I can't get the cheap price in Finland :( they cost me a lot even shipping 15 for just delivery inside Finland :o.

Thank UndCon, I also thinking similar as what you said. It may be doesnt work well but hey, take a look in this spannish guy project on youtube, what do you think about his screen.


I thought he was using the wall in his room instead  :D :D

Hi everyone,

I am new in here and I have some questions concern to wiimote whiteboard that I need your expert knowledge to help me.

I known that in order to create wiimote whiteboard we need to have IR pen, bluetooth usb and wiimote, my questions are:

1- is this IR led using for making the IR pen? --> vishay TSAL6400

2- When we make the IR pen, will it work on the white drape (cloth) because I have the video projector and the white drape hang on the wall (I don't have other screen material I only have the white drape :-) ). If it don't work what material you would suggest to make the screen?

3- What version of wiimote (remote control) you are using? because I saw on the internet there are 2 version (Japanese and US version), which version will work for the project. Can I buy the wii play which include the remote to use for the wii whiteboard? (I know we dont need the wii play but it has the wiimote following). I live in Finland (Europe) so I don't know which version is better choice (I think Japanese version is PAL and US version is NTSC -> will it make different when we use??)

4- What kinds of Bluetooth USB adapter that you think is the best?? I intend to buy a bluethooth v2.0 class 1 EDR to use and I don't know exactly the name because it brand new and I only got this info from the website of the seller:

    BLUETOOTH v2.0 adapter USB port
    Based on the Cambridge Silicon Radio, or BlueCore4
Broadcom BCM2045 or Broadcom BCM2045 or
ISSC IS1032N/IS1602N or ISSC IS1032N/IS1602N scheme

Will it work for the project?

So please give me some suggestions to help to avoid the mistakes before hand :-)
