Hey Guys,

I am a wannabe-musician and hip-hop-producer from Munich, Germany,
and I just bought myself a wiimote, built my first IR-Pen, and got it all to work, YAHOOOO !!!!

I want to use the whiteboard-stuff,
so i am able to controll all the knobs and faders in my audiosoftware (Abeton Live) simultaniously,
and with my fingers, just like with real mixers...

I think I'll build myself a glove with either LEDs or reflectors in the fingertips.

But I'll make another thread about that if i am ready for it.

First gotta build me a wiimote stand (Mine is still taped to my Music stand, haha...),
and save some cash for a beamer...


See you all around...

Hi - a nice implementation you have got here...

I think a glove will suit you best - just put one lead to the indexfinger and one lead to the thumb

When you put them togehter you close the circuit-loop and the IR-led is on
(i think it should be positioned to the tip of your indexfinger)

This way Itīs easy to control on/off on both hands allowing you to have 2 IR-dots

Expand the idea to try fully virtual workspace (tracked in 3dspace by 1 or 2 wiimotes - the problem here lies in the calibration and how to implement features...(i think you can project a sort of lasergrid/virtual keyboard to any workspace so you work within your wiimotes boundaries)...or just hook up to a projector...that displays your workspace...ahhh all those ideas...
