Wiimote Interactive Whiteboard / Alt Solution for the smart board.
« on: May 16, 2009, 10:29:18 AM »
I have an idea that I think can fix a several problems with the smart board and make it a little less complex on the users side. Why not use the IR LED as always on, and off as click? Now before you say that this wouldn't work at all, let me explain how it would work.

The IR pen would have 2 switches. An on/off at the back, and a normally on (disconnecting) at the front.

The Wiimote would be mounted above the screen, on a bar, pointing at the center on the screen. The reason for this is that if you mount the wiimote on top, it will always be able to see the IR LED. Also, when you move your hand away from the board, the wiimote would see that as moving the pointer down to the bottom of the screen, and the program would see that and not preform the click routine.

Some of you are probably saying, "What about click and drag?" Well, what you would do is program it so that when it sees the IR LED again, it delays the release of the button slightly, so that the drag would complete correctly.
