Hi All,
After a year of prototyping and experimenting we have a new digital interactive whiteboard solution for classrooms.
It can be found on:
http://wyxs.net/web/wiiscan/
The how to describes 'everything you always wanted to know about digital interactive whiteboards in classrooms, but were afraid to ask'. :-).
The how to is not completely finished, updated pictures will be added. Comments welcome.

Wiimote Interactive Whiteboard / Wiimote Replacement
« on: March 29, 2009, 03:22:19 PM »
Hi All,
I like the wiimote interactive whiteboard very much and we use it at our sdhcool. And more schools in our district will use it soon.

Still I'm not happy with Nintendos Wii. Reasons:
- Only one vendor, so I'm vendor-locked-in.
- For a digital whiteboard, the Wii has a lot of garbage. You only need the camera and a chip. Where can we buy it?
- As an educational institution (our business is sharing knowledge) we have a strong preference for open-hardware.

All this makes us look for alternatives. One promising alternative is Eduard Metger's webcam whiteboard:
http://eduard.metzger.googlepages.com/webcam-whiteboard
It is not yet so fast as the Wii, but he is trying to improve his WW.

Taking out the IR filter of a webcam is a piece of cake and replaing it with a piece of filter material also (Cokin A700 89 B filter).

IMHO thiis project has the potential to take over the Wii in the classroom.

General Hardware Talk / Pinouts on Wii
« on: August 30, 2008, 10:34:31 AM »
Hi All,
The connector on the Wii has 6 'pins'.
On the Nunchuk these pins are:

1 - green - data
2 - nothing
3 - red - 3.3+v
4 - yellow - clock
5 - nothing
6 - white - ground

Does anyone know if pin 2 and 5 are used on the Wii remote?

General Hardware Talk / buttons 1 and 2 'remote'?
« on: July 11, 2008, 02:17:16 AM »
Hi All,
In a classroom, one uses a whiteboard fixed to the wall and the Wiimote will be fixed to the ceiling.
It's a bit clumsy every day to find a ladder, press the 1 and 2 buttons and have another teacher start the WiimoteConnect program. The same goes for changing the batteries but that problem can be solved in various ways.

Is there a way to 'remote control' the 1 and 2 buttons?
Any hints would be greatly appreciated.
Kind regards,
Dirk
