Im trying to make the whole WiiWhiteboard programme work. And everything is fine, now i only need to make a nice IR-pen.

But i don't know what kind components i should use... Here's a list of thing's i'll need:

-led (how strong, how many amps, voltage, etc.)
-push button switch (how many voltage etc.)
-battery holder (this will be the main issue; what kind of battery should i use? AA, 1.5V or AAA? how will it fit inside the pen?)
-wires (well, this wont be hard :P)

Then i will need to put the stuff in a pen. But ive been looking but it's hard to find pens big enough to hold AAA batteries (that are the tiny ones).

I really like the image of the pen from this topic:
It seems nice and compact. Im aiming for that kind of a result.

Well, thanks in advance!

expo markers can hold a AA battery so there is no problem of holding a AAA.

Details, details. Things to do. Things to get done. Don't bother me with details, just tell me when they're done.
