Project Ideas / it is possible to use the wiimote to make a Tablet
« on: March 27, 2008, 01:01:02 PM »
for example.
use the same for the whiteboard but make to be like a tablet.
I tryed to add a wiimote to and end of a board then project to that board and calibrate it as a whitboard.
then move around and play with it.
the problem is that the wiimote needs to be a bit far away. moving closer the wii make the calibration dificult using a projector.

does any body knows if it is posible to have the wiimote to manual shutoff
instead of the auto turnoff feature.

« on: March 13, 2008, 10:05:48 PM »
hi all
I have learn today that the best LED for the pens are.

part number are 782-tsal6200

only .21 per unit

I have tried several LEDs the radio shack are very weak and no great for the pen.
I had so much frustration with rs LED  stay away if you can.
the Jim-pack brand are as bad for Led pen as Radioshack ones.

after using the vishay  my Led pen works just amazing.
tracking is even great at a projection on a wall up to 4 by 6 feet .
the wii set 10 feet from the wall.

my advice is get the rgiht LEDs and you will save a lot.
