Another solution is the right click on Windows Mobile devices.
You tab and hold the screen and then dots appear in a circle. when the circle is full then the action is interpreted as rightclick.
works pretty well

i have a wacom tablet and it utilizes something like Rick said, when you hold down the button a circle will fill up, and once its filled up, the right click menu will open

Yes, this is what I was referring to...

I got some more info on the NYKO Wireless Nunchuck. The price will be around 30 USD, not prohibitive. I am a little concerned about the range though. This is a point I have been worrying about, and it seems on the edge. They quote it to be 3 meters, which is OK most of the time. I guess you can find a place for the Wiimote on the edge of that range that will cover a fairly large viewing area.

A little trigonometry, where the Wiimote is placed at 45 degrees from the furthest point of the screen (300 cm away) will allow the wiimote to "see" an area 212 cm wide. Not Jumbo, but fair enough.

Nice idea, but we around here seek cheap solutions ^^
well i did some digging... why not take out the parts from a mouse that do the LMB/RMB clicks? I mean that's one chip and 2 nice, neat click buttons... i'll come back on the wireing later on. (still have to figure that out)

wiipen
point ATM: building V2
V1: 1 LED on 1 AAA battery feed
V2: 1 LED on USB feed
V2 will be remodded too V3
V3: 1 LED on USB feed /w LMB and RMB
V4: 1 LED WIRELESS /w LMB and RMB
V5: we'll see :3
Vmany: Bluetooth IR pen with mouse functions.

I think a fairly simple solution to the problem, although maybe not as elegant as a hardware based pen one is the freeware utility called Dmouse.  Run the utility and a window pops up with a mouse graphic in it.  The current selected mouse button is darkened. Pen touch the graphic and it switches to a right click. Tap it again and you switch back to left click. A nice feature is the "switchback mode". Do a right mouse click and after you've completed the selection it automatically switches back to left click.  Pretty slick. Problem solved and you don't get much cheaper than free.  John

alternatively, this could be easily incorporated into the current application. pretty good idea. comes back to my initial idea of having specified areas to control clicks.

heck, you could even have 3 areas, 1 says make it just mouse move, another says make it left click and another says make it right click.

Details, details. Things to do. Things to get done. Don't bother me with details, just tell me when they're done.

I'm still thinking the windows mobile solution is the best, because it does not need any extra area for rightclick.

Do make it move in areas then :) because when your in just move there isn't a way of clickin xD

yes, but if your pen is in a specific area, the behavior could change so that it doesnt send a mouse move so if you click in that area, it will change the behavior.

i think we should use macros. You click on the right click macro and it will simulate a right click next time you click then  itll switch automatically back to left click

Windows Vista has a Tablet-PC application. Why not use that?
I have tried that, with my mouse, but Windows says I have to use a pen. My thoughts are, if we can manage to use the mouse with the Tablet-PC application, then we have rightclick, scrolling and other mouse gestures.

Some kind of stylus emulation with mouse input

that would work for windows vista users, but us that still have xp would have to use something else, like this http://www.polital.com/pnc/ or something of the sort, but that is a good idea if you have vista
