Mi name is Marco Bauer and I'm a teacher at Alpamayo School in Lima Peru. Two other teachers and I were atracted to this wiimote and cheap smartboards thing by Chung Lee's videos and website.

We've managed to make it work with many difficluties but now, our school is interested on funding some research on this topic. The point is that now we're having troubles with the interaction with the wiimote.

we used to use a 32 bit Windows Vista laptop with a USB bluetooth adapter and it worked perfect. Now, we've changed to a Windows 7 64 bit laptop using the same USB bluetooth adapter and we cant make it work past the calibration point.

Can anyone help us with this?

Hi Marco,

The Wiimote Whiteboard application that you are using does not support 64-bit operating systems and thus it should be the cause to your problem.

You may want to try Smoothboard instead which works on both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7.
