Project Ideas / interactive table top
« on: May 16, 2008, 10:20:01 AM »
I've been thinking alot about interactive table top interfaces and found this link that may work with the wiimote setup:

From what I see, it looks like the current wiimote whiteboard setup could be compatible with this setup.  Any suggestions about modding the current software?  What do you all think?

Other Projects / wii fit and 3D simulations
« on: May 04, 2008, 05:01:54 PM »
hello all,
I was hoping for some input on the feasibility of using the new wii fit with the wiimote whiteboard setup.  Specifically, using the edusim software with the directional controls controlled by the wii fit board.  While I still am waiting for the release, I am wondering if any US or Japan forum users have already started work on this possible mod.  Great forum and I welcome any ideas.

IR Pens / 50mA versus 100mA
« on: March 04, 2008, 10:27:49 PM »
I just completed my IR pen and it does not seem to work.  The specs on this LED are as follows:

5mm INFRA RED EMMITTING LED (KIE-7305-1P) radiant intensity-100mW/sr   1.6V @50mA

I am wondering if this LED is not strong enough as the one recommended by Johnny Lee (Vishay TSAL6400) is 100mA. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I am not good with electronics.  I have this LED hooked up to 2-AA batteries with a 30 ohm resister and a momentary switch.  Thanks for any help!
