You only need the Wii if you want to use the motion sensor bar on your head... But this can be substituted with any IR lights somehow mounted on your head.

Wiimote Interactive Whiteboard / Wii Motion Plus
« on: July 21, 2008, 12:55:26 AM »
Announced at E3, the Wii Motion Plus is going to allow a greater and smoother connection. Can this be used for a smoother interaction on the Wiimote Whiteboard, and if so, will it be automatic, or will it require a plug-in (or something like that).

Wiimote Interactive Whiteboard / Re: Right Click (2nd IR LED)

About your original idea,

I'm not sure how sensitive the Wiimote is, but there are 6 IR lights on the sensor bar (three on each side), which the wiimote turns into 2. The wiimote would just see it as a bigger dot, which you then might be able to program by size, that would be hard.

The Wiimote sees IR light because the Wiimote is actually a camera.
The motion sensor bar placed on top or below your TV actually emits 6 (3 on each side) IR lights. The wiimote then makes a cursor (on the Wii) figuring where those points are according to how/ what angle it sees the points.

For the wiimote whiteboard the Program asks that the person do a 4-point calibration, showing the IR light to the wiimote on the boundaries of the screen. Then as a camera it knows where the point is.
You Might actually do this technique with a different camera, but the wiimote is the best camera for it's price.

The wiimote is connected to the Wii via bluetooth. Since bluetooth adapters allow computers to connect to bluetooth devices you can hook up to the wiimote.

Wiimote Interactive Whiteboard / Double click Suggestion
« on: May 01, 2008, 08:21:13 PM »
I know this is probably already asked but is there an easier way to double click, or any way in general. Or is there a separate application?

Me and my friend thought it might actually be easier if clicking always showed the mouse, and then letting go to clicked. Anybody know anything about something like that?

are you sure the Bluetooth stub is compatible for the wiimote? Check here,

Where did you get the Linksys Bluetooth Adapters

What is the best Bluetooth device for XP and the Wiimote?

Should I buy a AA or N battery holder, Is their an actual difference, and if I get a AA do I need a resistor?

Any-who, got a iMac (waiting for downloads) and a PC. I'm in High School and find this Wiimote projects both innovative and very useful

Wiimote Interactive Learning & Pedagodgy Discussion / School Presentation
« on: February 16, 2008, 04:23:43 PM »
I am doing a presentation for our high school about the Wiimote Whiteboard, they were looking at interactive whiteboards and what ones they should use. I told the head of our media center but he thought little about it. So I decided to make a presentation, as I had seen other presentations for other interactive whiteboards from their sponsors. He said he and others (including the principle) would see it. So I don't have a time limit to get ready and a 45min block for a presentation. Any tips, or things I should include?
