Title: Distance from remote to board
Post by: southlakehawk on February 24, 2008, 07:05:23 PM
How close does the wiiremote  need to be to the white board(writing surface)? I know part of this   is dependent on how big you want the picture to be, but say my projector is 10 feet away from said surface. Where should I place the wiiremote? I'm almost there, I just can't get the configuration settings correct. Thanks ya'll

I'm not 100% sure but I've seen some videos where the wiimote is a good distance from the screen and it seemed to work ok. I think a major factor is the ability of the wiimote to see the pen. That said, I think if the pen is not bright enough you will be limited on your distance.

For me at this moment I can get about 3 feet away from the surface with minimal loss in tracking ability.

I'm no expert here just starting this stuff myself.
