Wiimote Interactive Whiteboard / Re: Would this work as an IR pen?
« on: July 02, 2008, 11:33:54 AM »
I have purchased two of these styli for testing, here's a reply to a PM that may help others.

***********
These styli are nice, but I'm not 100% sure they are the right thing for the Wiimote Whiteboard project.  The case and light output is nice, but the power switch is located in the end of the stylus and is not convenient.  It may be possible to rewire a switch down near the grip for on/off control while writing, but that defeats the purpose of getting a manufactured stylus in the first place.  A custom built IR stylus with an on/off switch located on the grip would be a better use of funds and time.

IR Pens / results of testing the Streamlight Stylus I/R

The Streamlight stylus is nicely built, but the location of the power button is indeed not helpful as a virtual stylus as it is on the end of the pen.

The LED is also recessed so you have to rely entirely on the writing/projection surface reflecting light back to the Wiimote to see.  This doesn't work very well, but that may be different with some other type of front projection surfaces.

While I like the stylus for its build quality, the performance for the virtual whiteboard is less than ideal in a front projected, front tracked situation.  It may work very well for rear projection and rear tracking but I've not tested that yet.

IR Pens / Re: consensus on ready-made pen?

I've ordered a few of the Streamlight Stylus I/R Combo styli.  I'll report back if they're worth it or not.  Amazon has them for about $15 USD.
