Hello,

I am a K-12 educator who is new the wiimote project site.  I recently learned about the genius of Johnny Lee.  Inspired by some of the videos and research I have done, I picked up the necessary equipment:  wiimote, IR pen, etc. and decided to try it out for myself.  I downloaded the Mac version of the software and got everything set up.  I have been able to calibrate the IR pen and do some minimal interactive work. 

I have been experimenting with various wiimote placements.  I have tried placing it to the right side of the project -- up, down, etc.  When I checked the "tracking utilization", I have noticed that it ranges between 26% to 57%.  What is the optimal % for tracking utilization?  What placement seems to yield this optimal tracking utilization?

Thank you for any suggestions you may have.  I am excited out this technology.
