General Discussion / NJEA Convention
« on: September 14, 2010, 07:31:29 PM »
Is anyone here attending the NJEA convention in November?

I'm going to be in tech hall demonstrating the Wiimote.

If you'd like to have one of your products in use that day, please let me know.

As of now I'll be using Smoothboard and Massiveboard.

Regards,

Neils

It's unfortunate you've had no success.  This project has moved beyond the DIY and is a better alternative to competitors...yes in education.

When our install is complete we will have 21 classrooms using the technology.

I am at the Maurice River Township Elementary School in New Jersey.  Our school has ~360 students and every classroom for students K-8 will have the technology in the classroom.

I started using free software, but found Smoothboard to be superior for the starting teacher...just holding the pen in position to bring up a mouse-click is really the only portion that I found superior...

Massiveboard works flawlessly.

I'm not sure what your issues were, but I have used Toshiba and Lenovo laptops running Windows 7 Pro with a 3 dollar bluetooth adapter and had no connectivity issues.

No, I'll just look forward to your next release.

This is a quote from elsewhere on the site: I have not tried it...

NOTE: I have only tried this with my stack (the one that comes installed with ThinkPad internal bluetooth).  If somebody wants to confirm  or deny that it works on other things, I'm sure the community would appreciate it.

What happens (the obvious way):
1) You hold down both 1 and 2 on wiimote.
2) You go into "My Bluetooth Places" and click "Find Bluetooth Devices".
3) It finds it, and you click it.
4) You eventually wind up at the "Bluetooth Paring" window, where the "skip" button doesn't work.

What happens my way:
1) You hold down both 1 and 2 on wiimote.
2) You go into "My Bluettoth Places" and click "Bluetooth Setup Wizard" instead.
3) On the first screen, select "I want to find a specific Bluetooth device, blah, blah, blah"
4) Once again, it finds your wii, so select it.
5) Now our favorite friend the "Bluetooth Paring" window shows up.  But not to despair!  This one, the "skip" button ACTUALLY WORKS!
6) Finish up the wizard, and jam out!

Wiimote Interactive Whiteboard / Uniboard

Have you tried uniboard?
http://getuniboard.com/

I have not tried it...as I'm currentyly using Massiveboard...which is very impressive...and also free...

I just have to remember M for mouse and D for drawing...because Massiveboard and Desktop aren't intuitive for me yet...(for those of you that know what I'm talking about.)

Wizi,

I only wish I could do more for your project than provide feedback.

I haven't used Wiimote Presenter...

There is a program called joy2key that lets you map movements on a joystick to the keyboard...

What I want is similar to that... I just want to be able to have something I point to with the ir-pen provide a keyboard command.

In any case, you've saved me some time by not having to record the video...hopefully you find solution...and the project stays fun for you like a puzzle.

Regards,

Neils

Good morning Wizi,

Clarification:

The user defined button would represent a key or key combination.

Alt-tab or ctrl-w or ctrl-alt-esc or just alt-s ...

______

On windows 7 I'm having a peculiar issue.   For example if I try to minimize to tray (certain applications) like the wiimote helper, or accessibility keyboard, the mouse freezes.  I have to walk over to the laptop and move the mouse physically-rather than with the infrared pen.   Then I can minimize and the infrared pen will continue to work.

I'll video tape this issue today and post a link.

Thanks again Wizi,

Neils

One addition that I would like to see is a button that would be user definable...

Right now you have left/right/double/...

So for example it could be left/right/double/userdefined...

Alt-tab is something that I find myself walking over to a real keyboard for...

Some might use the userdefined button to open a program (keyboard)...

Keep up the great work...

Thanks,

Neils

Thanks for the update, I'll be able to test it tomorrow...all my stuff is at work.

Wiimote Interactive Whiteboard / Re: Wiimote WB Helper v0.1
« on: January 11, 2010, 02:07:42 PM »
Hello.  If you could add a double-click option on the menu where you choose left/right that would be beneficial.

Thanks for taking the time to make your program.

Regards

General Discussion / Linux Whiteboard
« on: December 05, 2009, 08:01:55 AM »
I'm not sure it this is in the right place:

The linux whiteboard program (whiteboard_0.3.4.2-0ubuntu1i386.deb) for connecting is so polished.  I like how it has the rectangle in the center of the screen showing the user the position of the infra red relative to the camera view.  It also flawlessly connects my wiimotes. 

The windows programs I've seen show this, but only after the calibration is complete...

Is this something that can be ported to windows easily...

Regards,

Neils

Good morning,

I've been testing the combination of Pentabulous with Promethean's software (ActivInspire Personal Edition) http://www.prometheanplanet.com/server.php?show=nav.17508.

SMART doesn't seem to have a free legal alternative, unless I'm mistaken.
