IR Pens / Laser Pointer style pen.
« on: January 14, 2008, 01:30:31 PM »
I was thinking about the minority report and stuff, then i thought of some other movies. They use laser pointer type pens and click and drag stuff. I thought it would be kinda cool to make one so i did, I used and IR led, a piece of tubeing that i found, a switch, and a AAA battery. I put the Led in the front, and then the switch, then a battery, i got it all locked in there, but then i thought of Johnny Lee's design of having the wii remote behind the person, so i put it underneath the tv, i stood about 3 feet away from the tv and it worked, haven't taken any pics yet but when i do, i'll post them. I used the program and it looked really cool and futureistic. I'm thinking about adding a laser pointer to make it look cooler, but do laser pointers have any IR attributes???

I just watched the wiimote finger tracking vid and the whiteboard vid. I was thinking, what if you could combine the two together. you have some gloves with IR led's on the back of you fingers and on the front are switches. When you press down on one of the switches, a consecutive IR led will light up, No. if you had a projection/screen on a table, you could just press down on the finger and it will act as if you are actually pressing into the screen. Id you don't understand me, just tell me and i'll try to be more clear.
