Other / Using two TSAL-6400s in parallel and powering them...
« on: November 03, 2010, 01:09:05 PM »
My master plan ( evil laugh ) involves mounting a wiimote over my monitor and attaching two TSAL-6400 LEDs to my wireless bluetooth headset. Ideally I want them to be powered by a single rechargeable triple A battery.

However, I have a problem. This would be 1.2V, the TSAL-6400s require 1.35V to run at maximum efficiency. I don't know how much I'm losing on them if I run them at 1.2V and if I add two batteries then it quickly gets too heavy for my blueparrott headset to hold up. Plus, I can run 1.5V through these LEDs fine without resistors or anything complicated. Once I get to 2.4V, I have to start adding resistors and making it complicated.


I'm also curious as to what is the best software for doing this. Eventually I want to be able to use an IR glove as well, depending on how well software support for that is... Coincidentally, what would be the best/fastest/least intrusive software solution to use for this? I just need mouse cursor support and possibly, if I make the IR glove, a way to detect 'clicks', possibly something like mentioned in this thread: http://www.wiimoteproject.com/other/minority-report-ir-gloves-to-fully-control-a-workstation-t3098/

Calibration would probably be useful, too, haha.

Ya make any progress? I don't know if there are any programs that have a way to hook in to detecting a new / removed IR source.

You could also make it so that when there aren't any IR sources visible, it releases the mouse cursor for other use.

I'm making a head mouse to use with speech recognition...so...this is of interest to me as a glove might be useful too and I could switch back to using a mouse when I needed to, just by grabbing my mouse if it sensed all IR sources disappearing.

I removed them all, reinstalled the controller, it didn't work. So in frusteration I went upstairs and snatched another one of our wiimotes, the piano black one. Lo and behold, it worked immediately.

So should I kill the Toshiba stack and go with the Windows stack? This is a workstation system for CGI and every single bit of RAM I have free makes a difference, unless the Toshiba stack is much better. I won't be using bluetooth for anything but this.

Remove them as in how? Just deleting them will have both my keyboards and my mouse and Dragon naturally Speaking and my Wacom tablet not working.

I'll do something I did to get my OCZ Sabre keyboard working and use USBDeView to kill all my HID USB things so that they'll all reinstall. They'll still be there, just, not all at once.

here's my HID list, my bluetooth settings panel, and the device properties of the game controller that should be the wiimote.

This is one that came with the system. Sorry if I wasn't clear! :)

Alrighty, here's what I have. I've read TONS of guides and everything.

Windows 7 x64 pro, a Nintendo OEM remote, an Azio BTD-V201 bluetooh V2.1 + EDR class 1 bluetooth adaptor, and I've tried with the same result with both the Toshiba and the Windows bluetooth stack.

Regardless of what program I use ( Barring Dolphin, which made my wiimote show up as 'player 1', but I couldn't get it to do anything with it ), I can get the wiimote to connect to my computer, but the lights keep flashing as if it were trying to make a connection and no program ( Smoothboard, glovePIE, wiiremoteconnect-0.6, wiinremote_v2007.1.13 ) can do anything with it. Even after loading Dolphin up to where the wiimote shows up as 'player 1', none of the programs read data from the wiimote neither on the Toshiba nor Windows bluetooth stacks.

I don't know what I need to do. I'm attempting to make a head mouse to use with Dragon Naturally Speaking for hands free access to my computer.
