That's catchy. So it would track the first dot continually and register that as the "cursor" dot. With a modified whiteboard program, this could work in concept. The issue would then become covering the second or third dots with your hand. If any of them were covered while the right-click button was pressed, it would send funny signals to the computer.

The problem is that the IR's have to be located a bit apart.

If they are not - they might be registered as 1 IRdot which happens every now and then when I'm using 2 IR-pens...

Can one of the LED of IRPen be pressure-activated and the second LED button-triggered. If this is possible, would it work like a mouse?   pressure-activated LED = dot1 button-triggered = dot2
dot1 == on
     Right-click mouseUp
     Left-click mouseDown
dot1 && dot2 == on
     Left-click mouseUp
     Right-click mouseDown
else
     Right-click mouseUp
     Left-click mouseUp

bump...

Any software that use this idea ?

the 2nd led can be used to send morse code, but then we end up with more buttons.
