Excellent, even tough I haven't tested thoroughly, but your ramblings are very useful, thank you for your contribution.

Few feedback from me, I almost think that it has wiimote connect feature, but when I re-read it is auto-connect feature, not sure how to test it, because it gives me error when I turn off the wiimote and click connect.

Also, sometimes it gives error "Cannot access a disposed object" Object name: CalibrationForm.

So, this program is promising, but require few more touch to finish it.

I am asking for "hover the mouse" feature, rather than just "click the mouse", it is built-in in Java whiteboard.
Is the sensitivity level already max ?

Accessories / Remote Control for On-Off and 3v adaptor
« on: March 06, 2010, 02:08:26 AM »
After experimenting with On-Off remote like in this post
It turns out to be easy to change the jumper, as seen on the picture.

And I am planning to sell this for USD 50

The specification:
1. No rechargeable battery involved
2. Integrated remote control receiver and adaptor
3. 2.99 to 3.00 voltage output
4. Include Automatic Voltage Regulator
5. Customized cable length for DC cable or AC cable
6. LED indicator for channel A or channel B
7. No soldering required in the wiimote
8. Using standard adaptor connector, not audio connector
9. 256 different frequency combinations (2^8)
10. 2A transformer for durable continuous usage




If you are interested, send email to at

Have you try this ?

It solves my problem.

General Hardware Talk / Remote Control for On-Off
« on: January 29, 2010, 07:33:40 PM »
I buy a remote control with on-off function, and then test it with 3 volt leds, this could be the solution for remote control of wiimote.

The remote is powered by AC, so no need power adaptor, the seller said it can achieve 50 meters with line of sight, but I don't test it that way, what I test is I bring the remote away for about 15 mtrs blocked by 4-5 walls and it still works.

I read it here that there is a concern about interfering frequency that other remote can trigger the led, and the concern is valid, because when I use another remote, it triggers the led, but I have not change the jumper yet, so more experiments are needed to conclude better judgement.

In the mean time, I will synchronize the jumper between the remote and the receiver and will let you know the outcome.

I get sensitivity problem with glovepie, it is not as sensitive as wiimotepresenter, but it might be just the script, because I use standard old ones.

Updated script, see top post.

Next thing I want to do is combine it with IR. After that, I can start making it suitable for games.

Java whiteboard link is

GTK whiteboard link is

Combination between the two is magnificent, in java wb, under Mouse Control, there is an option to choose between move and click mode, but we have to activate the window and click the radio button, this is quite annoying, but gtk wb make it simple by just clicking it on the right side (beyond calibrated area).

Thank you for considering this.

Hi Mason,
I haven't used java Whiteboard yet, since I am using window7 with mini USB BT dongle, i have to use Bluesoleil. But i just ordered a new USB BT that can be used with Microsoft stack.  When I get the new BT, I'll be able to use Java Whiteboard and have a better picture of it. Can you give me the link to download gtk whiteboard? I am new to wiimoteproject :)

But according to my understanding, it isn't hard to do. You just need the coordinates of the cursor and the screen. You will be able to control the mouse clicks.

This is great, I want a request,

Can you make move only mode and click mode, similar to java whiteboard (uwe), preferably by toggling it in side bar, similar to gtk whiteboard ?

Sidebar means beyond calibrated area, for example upper area for Toggling Move and Click mode, lower area for double click, left and right area for right click.

So when we want to just move the cursor (with IR led on), we click on the upper side of calibrated area, then if we want to be back with normal mode which is click mode, we click again on the upper side, that's why gtk whiteboard call this sidebar.

Thank you.

It works, both of unrecognized BT dongles can connect to wiimote now.

Previously, they are recognized only as Bluetooth USB, but now as Bluetooth Radios.

Thank you.

We're compiling some improvements to be made for the next version.

I hope you are not forgetting about toggling move only and click only feature in the sidebar :)

Don't forget your sensor bar.

IR Mouse.pie

Code: [Select]
// Wiimote mouse script for Windows desktop
// Requires a sensor bar

var.ButtonFreezeTime = 250ms
var.PointerBump = KeepDown(Pressed(wiimote.A),var.ButtonFreezeTime) or KeepDown(Pressed(wiimote.B),var.ButtonFreezeTime)
Wiimote.Led1 = true

// Mouse movement
if wiimote.PointerVisible but not var.PointerBump then
  mouse.x = wiimote.PointerX
  mouse.y = wiimote.PointerY
end if

// Mouse Buttons
mouse.LeftButton = Wiimote.A and KeepDown(Wiimote.PointerVisible,0.5s)
mouse.RightButton = Wiimote.B and KeepDown(Wiimote.PointerVisible,0.5s)
mouse.MiddleButton = Wiimote.Home and KeepDown(Wiimote.PointerVisible,0.5s)
mouse.XButton1 = Wiimote.Minus
mouse.XButton2 = Wiimote.Plus

// Mouse Wheel
if wiimote.Up then
  mouse.WheelUp = true
  wait 30ms
  mouse.WheelUp = false
  wait 30ms
end if
if wiimote.Down then
  mouse.WheelDown = true
  wait 30ms
  mouse.WheelDown = false
  wait 30ms
end if

What is the reason behind Mousepad feature ?
I notice different sensitivity between IR Mouse.pie with yours, yours seem require less than 1 m to operate.

Great sharing.

This month only, there has been 2 free released software, both are very nice enhancements.

Can you make move only and move and click mode, similar to java whiteboard, preferably by toggling it in side bar, similar to gtk whiteboard ?

That would be very awesome.

Anyway, thank you very much.

Excellent !

Congratulations on your achievement for doing this, work for this wiimote idea will have many ways to reach the surface.

Wiimote Interactive Whiteboard / Re: Seeking IR pen help

Groove has 2 triggers to switch on the led, first in the led itself and second in the red flat button.
Size is great, fits comfortably in my hand, it doesn't use button battery, which is very good.

But here are my suggestions for next improvements
-Shorten the led click, so it is not interpreted as click-n-drag
-Soften the led switch, so only very small effort to click it, helps to preserve the led too
-Change the flat red button to other button with small effort button, touch sensitive, maybe
-Put a grip on it

Just try it, like my experience with wireless nunchuk.
