Looking very nice indeed Boonjin,

I'll have some time to test it out this coming weekend and will let you know. I'm liking the new look.

Ha may bad on the TSAL6400, I just realised I ordered 100 of the semiconductors  >:(
sorry bout the mix up, thee are rated at 2.6V max and only have a 25 degree viewing angle...lucky I checked and farnell accept returns, another 100 of the correct ones are in place.

I have a few ideas similar for pens with the recharge option and will post pics when I get time

Boonjin,

Yes, I have downloaded the version with the bug fix, I'll be sure to give it a rigorous test tomorrow, however I still need to purchase a 2nd Wiimote for simultaneous use of smoothboard and presenter.
I'll let you know tomorrow afternoon.

Cheers
Andrew

Ben,

Couldn't agree more, Boonjin is doing amazing things and need a decent pen, i'll be testing out the new release in the classroom tomorrow, the school i'm at has just currently ordered 100 Vishay TSAL6400 LEDs and plan on putting together a heap of pens with the gifted and talented students.

I have one question, you use a rechargeable AAA, and as far as i'm aware, you were using the above diode which has a forward voltage of 2.6 and a AAA only has 1.5V. how much does it affect pen performance or have you changed diodes?

I use a Bluetooth Mouse & keyboard, great for students to pass arround class and add content. (A bluetooth with inetgrated mouse ball would be cool, so one package).

Ben,

Have a look at the Logitech DiNovo Edge Bluetooth keyboard, have a touch-pad like those on laptops for a mouse, bit pricey, but a very good product.

Have a look at this site for DIY LCD data Projectors...they even sell kits so you don't have to chase everything down and wait for parts.

i'm looking at building one after I perfect my Wiimote set-up

G'day Ben

Mate thats brilliant thanks heaps.
Can I ask what are the programs that are being used in the video apart from Annotate!Pro??? ie the one that converts freehand to text??
The Annotate program is exactly what I've been looking for, I'm currently in my final year of study for a B.Science/B.Teach at the university of New England so being able to bring such affordable technology into the  science classroom will make explaining concepts and theories so much easier and engaging for students.

Wiimote Interactive Whiteboard / Whiteboard App transparent overlay
« on: May 30, 2008, 01:34:51 AM »
couln't find anything in a quick search so I may as well throw it out there.

Has anyone thought of modding the whiteboard app so there is an overlay option allowing it to become transparent to the rest of the computer apps so it can be used to draw on paused video filoes powerpoint presentations etc??
a second wiimote could be used in the way Jason Smith showed on this forum to control anything else such as media and presentations.

i'm no good at programing so I thought I should throw it out there for someone to consider.

this would bring it one step closer to the 3000k smartboard

Cheers
Andrew
