Hi all,
      I am an computer engineering student and also working as a high school teacher teaching robotics. I have been a great fan of this project from quite a while, and a great fan of Johnny Lee's research in general. The school I work in has recently aquired a projector for the robotics lab, and i have a wiimote at home. I'm very excited about trying the white board out.

In general I am very interested in the wiimote (it holds alot of sensors and is really cheap for what i holds). I want to try to take appart the wiimote and hook up the different parts to a microcontroller (has anyone here tried to use the sensors directly? I recently saw a site where they finally managed to reverse engineer the camera.

I am hoping to be more a part of this community and try to contrabute when I get more aquanted with the project.

thanks,
Gil

Hey bobster23, it's good to see you here. I don't know much about the inner workings of the wiimote, but I think this site may be of some use.

I hope you can find what you're looking for! Don't be afraid to ask any questions you may have.
