Wiimote Interactive Whiteboard / Somes questions... :-)
« on: November 10, 2008, 12:40:34 AM »
Hi everybody !
First, I'm sorry for my english, I'm French and young : my english is not perfect.  :D

I've seen somes videos about "Wiimote Whiteboard" and I think this is interesting.

But I'm not sure to understand everything... (I'm sure I don't  :) )

The trick is :
- The Wiimote is connected to the PC with Bluetooth. Look at a surface. (Whiteboard for exemple)
- The PC is connected to a Video Projector which send the Desktop image on the surface.
- We use an IR Pen to "write" on the Whiteboard, the Wiimote receive the IR Pen's position.
- The Wiimote send the information to the PC with the Bluetooth
- We use an emulation software to recognize the information gived by the Wiimote as a "cursor".

But I've got some questions, I've read some dock on website, but the English is not very easy for me... :)

- How the Wiimote understand when we're touching the Whiteboard and when we're simply moving the Pen in the air ?
- This doesn't work with every programs ? If it works like a "second mouse", it should ?
- How the relation between IR Pen and Wiimote does work ? The Wiimote has to see the IR Led ?
- Basically, when we're playing Wii, it's not the Wiimote that "send the position" to a captor ? Because, here, It's the IR Pen that send is own location to the Wiimote... I don't really understand.

So, I like this idea, I don't know if I'll try to do this at home (I don't really need) but I really want to understand the trick.  ;D
It would be great if somebody could answer me. After research, I don't find the answer for those questions, or the answers were ambiguous.

Thanks ! Have a nice day (It's 7h30 at home :p )

PS : Again, I'm sorry for my english, tell me if there's "Misspellings" or other wrong things.
