Wiimote Smoothboard / Want so badly for this to work....
« on: December 05, 2011, 12:31:28 PM »
but I'm getting very frustrated. 

I am trying to get the wiimote whiteboard to work in my classroom but I don't know what I am doing incorrectly. 

I have a set-up that disallows mounting my wiimote or projector on the ceiling.  I have my projector on a cart.  My screen is small - about a meter square.  I have the projector a little over 2 meters from the screen.  I have a genuine Wiimote, a brand new IR Sabre pen from Wiiteachers, both with new batteries, and Smoothboard 2 on Windows Vista.  My wiimote registers and connects.  Smoothboard launches with no problems.

The problem comes for me with the calibration.  I have my wiimote roughly 2 meters from the board, though I have tried placing it at various distances from 1.5 meters to about 2.5 meters.  I have tried placing the wiimote at various angles from 90deg to about 30deg. 

When I go to the board to calibrate the whole thing, it refuses to work.  In a week of trying, I have yet to get one of the little red circles to click by using the IR Pen at the board.  I tried looking at the IR pen with the digital camera and it shows right up.  I can also get the calibration circles to click through their cycle if I point the IR pen directly at the wiimote at close proximity. 

When I try to calibrate at the board, the best tracking number I can get is about 2%.  When holding the IR pen close, I can get in the high 30's.

Can someone please help?

Hello one and all...

I'm a secondary teacher from Orlando.  I plan on using the Wiimote whiteboard in my classroom as the school doesn't have the money to purchase the expensive boards.  I was at a school before where I had one and got spoiled, so I'm very anxious to get this one up and running!
