IR Pens / suggestions for Smoothboard
« on: September 19, 2008, 09:39:56 AM »
I'm pretty new to this but have made a couple of wands out of PVC, plumbing tube, cork and battery case.  I found by looking through the IR setting of my video camera that the IR LEDs are a lot brighter head-on, so I'm going to turn the bulb 90 degrees.  That'll give a smaller profile and focus my calibration anyway.

I found that even after calibrating carefully and adjusting the x-y to correct the cursor, I am never quite sure where it is until I click -- and then it's too late.  Is there a way to show the cursor moving before the click, as you would with a real mouse?  Maybe I just haven't found the setting, there's so much functionality built in already.

Thanks, this has great potential for me.

Thanks for your help.  Both cursors were red, so I'm pretty sure it wasn't set to detect two IRs.  I deleted and reinstalled, and it works fine now!  Thanks again.

Wiimote Interactive Whiteboard / Problem calibrating -- double cursor occurs
« on: September 12, 2008, 09:03:21 AM »
Hello -- I had success with Wiimote Whiteboard and am looking forward to the increased functionality of Smoothboard.  It worked for me once, but now after calibration I get two cursors, one about 10% screen height NE of the first.  Both have control, both blink when clicked, and judging from a graphics program which draws an intense NW-SE zigzag instead of a line, the control alternates between the to points.  I've tried in several places, same issue.  Anyone know what might be going on?
