Hi from south west Sydney!!!

Some really great ideas already here just from browsing around. Thanks to all the hard working contributors. Am contemplating using Wiimote and so am a greenhorn here and some of the information is rather puzzling. e.g. Just looking for IR pens. Hope to learn more of the product as I am desperate to use it when I go back to school later.

Peter

The best thing to do would be to grab yourself a wiimote (eBay is the cheapest) and, if you're inept with soldering and electrical stuff like me, then just buy yourself a cheap IR pen. There are tons of step by step tutorials posted by some amazing contributors here that can get you started. We actually want to help, so feel free to ask any questions you have. If we don't answer your question directly, it's not because we don't like you... it's just because it's already been discussed elsewhere. In those cases we'll just refer you to the correct thread.

Welcome to the best project in the world as far as potential goes! Happy to have you.
