it is actualy quite acurit the only issues is that if the pen still isnt pointed at the wii mote that the line goes off in la la land.  but that is only an issue if you are using a drawing app.

but for my next thing i am going to build this will not present its self as an issue.

i have actualy moded the pen to have the ir in the back of the pen so that way it eleminates the issues of reflection. since right now i am using a wall that is matt in finish or low gloss.

if i am thinking right i would only have to move the wii mote up a couple feet inorder to get the higher res. as well as it is an origenal comming from the origenla packageing.  the other course is i may need to try two wii motes and see what happens there.

and i am localy tracking down one of the ir leds that you guys suggest since it seams to be working for all of you.

the other thing you can do is find out when the patant is due and then the tech becomes avalible for copy unless they change something on the patint and re issues the date of protection.

good luck in your search. also check out china they dont care about patants.  so much.

alright so i was playing around and i finaly got my wii remot and ir pen to work togeather properly... what i have found out is that the ir i have needs to be pointed prity much right at the wii mote at all times or it loses signal and stops functioning till i get it back in the right direction.

so what i am gathering from this comes from my last topic and that is the 950nm wave langth compaired to the 940nm on the one i have been suggested to get.

if i am right on my point can some one pleas let me know.

now my set up is pritty stright forward. the wii mote is directly above my projector 4 feet off the ground. the distance is about 13 feet away and the usage space i have is 51 % of the wii mote view able aria. as per smoothboard.

so from what i can tell the aplication for what i am wanting to do this will work out well... though i will need two wii motes to do it. the other way is using two ps3 eye's to make the multy tuch board that i am planing on making.

thanks in advance for any info

thanks that was a big help now i will try it out. and if i get what your saying to be right. if i am using a projection screen that is 60" high i will need to be 120 inch's away.  will it even work? and if so will it work well?

i was wondering if i got one of the nyco bars and dismantled the ir's out of that would that work? but i am guessing the cost to ship one of the pre-made pens is probably cheaper.

that is good to know, i will see if i can locate another ir led, as well as a different wii mote. i did set up the other ir led i have from the gun con locator and it did work a little better but what i keep running into is an inability to get the wii mote aimed in the right spot. i put it where i think it is looking at the full screen but it only registers 2/3rd's of the actual display.

You will need a high-powered IR LED such as the Vishay TSAL 6400.

To save you trouble from testing the various IR LEDs, it is better just to get the Vishay TSAL 6400.

Also, if you are using a non-genuine or faulty Wiimote, the sensitivity may be very low like you have mentioned where you will need to face the IR LED directly to the Wiimote.

if you take a look at the specs the one your directed me too is identical and i think mine is more powerful then that one by 10nm.

ok so i got a wii mot connected to my computer, i have made an IR pen using the source/radio shack canada product number 276-0142, and an old screw driver i had as well as a button from an old web cam.

my issue is now i cant seam to get the right angle for the wii mote to pick up the ir-pen that i have made unless it is almost facing it.

i have looked at my ir-pen through a portable back up cam i have and it is bright. as well as my ps3 eye and it shows well on there even with the filter.

the pen i am using is running off of a 3 volt power (2*1.5 volt AA batteries) with a resister inbatween ( 1 gold 2* black). witch i stoll from an old ir system for my gun con.

now i have tryed this on my lap top with the ir from the gun con which i can not identify the ir led on it. but it did work but they seam to stop working after a little while and i have also  cooked a couple. one because of a 9 volt... woops... lol and the other just stopped working.

so i got the ones from "radio shack" and they work, but like i said only if pointed almost at the wii mot.

Screen is 15" (13" long 8" high)

i guess my question is:

what am i doing wrong?
where should the wii mote go? i do know it is 45 dagree angle on the thing.
is there a better suited ir led i should find?
