Wiimote Smoothboard / vista 64 and Smoothconnect
« on: December 22, 2009, 08:49:43 AM »
I always have issues pairing my wiimotes with my Vista 64 machine using smoothconnect. I had the same issues with Thex's wiimoteconnect.  Eventually the pairings work, sometimes on the first go, sometimes 1 works and I have to restart smoothboard and try to get the second one to work or some other weird combination. 

Is there anything I can do other than get rid of Vista 64 asap?

Accessories / Wiimote Mount
« on: July 08, 2009, 01:51:03 PM »
Here's a wiimote clamp mount that I've come up with that I will sell for $20.00

  • Extremely flexible
  • Can stand on its own
  • Wiimote does not need to be altered
  • Needs no other accessories

General Discussion / Wiimote with Promethean's ActivInspire

Using ActivInspire

I've installed 13 machines and this is the first time this has happened to me.  Using the windows stack I get to stage 7 of the "Connecting the Wiimote to a XP/Vista/Mac Bootcamp Microsoft Bluetooth stack" first connection sequence where it reads "If this is a first time connection you will need to wait for the HID drivers to be found and installed. This may take a while and requires admin privileges on your Windows user."  And nothing else happens.  We've waited there for a while several times.

Any help would be much appreciated

On my Vista 64 bit laptop, I always have to unplug the bluetooth dongle from the USB port and plug it back in when I'm turning on the machine otherwise nothing happens with bluetooth.  Does this for two different brands of bluetooth dongle, other than that everything works great.  This doesn't happen on my 32 bit vista desktop.

wondering if anyone else sees this and is there a solution?

General Hardware Talk / AA battery eliminator
« on: March 12, 2009, 09:45:14 AM »
I'm using a AA battery eliminator (with slight modifications as described) and I'm coming up with 127% power on the wiimote when I fire up the whiteboard.

Is that a huge problem?


General Discussion / IWB lesson ideas for teachers
« on: March 10, 2009, 05:35:37 AM »
Nice resources from the UK  I found for teachers using IWBs in their classrooms - breaks everything down nicely by subject.

The link to "Use of interactive whiteboards in science" is broken - I found it here.

I'm handing these out to teachers that I'm teaching to use wiimote whiteboards.

..... will be a vista machine.

Any suggestion on what Bluetooth Dongle I should buy/order to make getting my the laptop going with both the Java Whiteboard and Smoothboard up and running as easily as possible? 

Hi everybody, I've been setting up wiiboards in other classrooms and I thought I'd share what I'm giving the teachers.
