yes it will work, it works everywhere, it's not about the screen, it's about the wiimote + ir-pen ;) so you can use it on any surface, as long as the IR light gets reflected :)

Whilst setting up and trying different configurations of my trial and error IR-Pen's I have been using my Home PC with CRT monitor.

I have found the monitor does affect the traceability of the pen. I ended up putting my Wiimote over my monitor and shining it onto a piece of cardboard. I configured the four points on the cardboard. The same pen would then work far better.

I don't have enough electronic background to explain, but I found the CRT monitor did affect the performance of the pen. The pen felt funny moving across the monitor too, not sure if this was an electromagnetic thing or not?

The only way to find out is to suck & see!
