I updated Johnny Chung Lee's original Wiimote Whiteboard with a couple of new features and bug fixes, including 64 bit compatibility and Bluetooth auto-connect. It's opensource just as with the original version.

If anyone is interested it's available at http://www.hiddenramblings.com/2010/06/wiimote-whiteboard-with-windows-x64.html

Admins: I've added this to downloads as well, but I don't think it's approved as of yet. I hope it's ok to post it here as well.

Excellent, even tough I haven't tested thoroughly, but your ramblings are very useful, thank you for your contribution.

Few feedback from me, I almost think that it has wiimote connect feature, but when I re-read it is auto-connect feature, not sure how to test it, because it gives me error when I turn off the wiimote and click connect.

Also, sometimes it gives error "Cannot access a disposed object" Object name: CalibrationForm.

So, this program is promising, but require few more touch to finish it.

I am asking for "hover the mouse" feature, rather than just "click the mouse", it is built-in in Java whiteboard.
Is the sensitivity level already max ?

I should have explained a bit more the autoconnect feature can only deal with the bluetooth pairing of the pc side. you still  have to hold down buttons 1 and 2 to initiate a bluetooth connection on the wiimote. However it should not give an error. Could you let me know what the error message was?

I will check out the calibration form error. I presume you get this while doing calibration of the wiimote.

The sensitivity is the same as it was in the original software. I'll probably allow you to change it via the ui in the next version.

I didn't quite manage to get the Java whiteboard working. which was one of the reason to doing this update. I will certainly try to implement it.

Thanks very much for your input.

hi, thanks for you hard working

But I think that you make a update from wiimote whiteboard demo version, and this demo version has numerous bugs and relatively low functionality. So, why don't you ask and work with jonny? to make a new version from 1.6 smooth ?
