I have my WiiMote connected via Bluetooth to my computer.  My IR pen works wonderfully.  I can even "callibrate" my Whiteboard, however not properly.

Where do I need to set up my WiiMote in order for it to see the points on the board?  I have a large classroom with a whiteboard and a projector mounted on the ceiling.

Any ideas where the WiiMote should be??  It's driving me nuts!

I have mine about 45 degree's to the right (me facing class) and about 2m away. With the Wiimote aimed at the centre of my whiteboard.

If you use Boonjin's Whiteboard application he has a http://www.wiimoteproject.com/wiimote-whiteboard/wiimote-smooth-board-0-1-beta/ calibration assitance tool in the program.

I assume you are righthanded Ben, and leans your pen to the right a bit like in normal handwriting.

At least that's what I do...


So if you are lefthanded the same setup should work if you use about the same angle and the wiimote to the left while your back is  facing the witeboard

If I'm not remember wrong there is a thread about viewing angle and some aspect ratios...

Yes right handed, I tend to rotate my left shoulder a few degree's more from the whiteboard, than I would when using the whiteboard normally but it has little effect on my writing or comfort.

http://www.wiimoteproject.com/wiimote-whiteboard/first-trial-ideal-distance-wiimote-andlt-andgt-size-screen/ Some really cool math and thought went into this post, respect to sts70nl!

The aim is to get the tracking utilisation as close to 100% as possible.
