Wiimote projector whiteboard

[Johnny Lee]‘s back again with his Wiimote interactive whiteboard. Commercial versions of these things are expensive and heavy. His technique doesn’t even need a projector, just a computer, a Wiimote and a simple IR emitting pen. The pen is just a stylus with an infrared LED in the tip. Hit the video after the break, and you can grab the software from his site here.


  1. Another video showing a similar device – turns any old monitor into a touch surface:

    Last night I picked up the IR LED from radio shack along with a resistor to bring 5v down to about 1.2v. I spliced this all into a USB cable and it doesn’t seem to light up at all. I’m not sure if I’ve done something wrong but the wiimote will not track the LED at all.

    Has anyone else had luck with making this type of thing? I’m pretty newb when it comes to DIY electronics. I looked at a few sites and it seems like I did the right thing but I can’t be sure.

    On another note has anyone tried a red laser? That would be a ideal solution IMHO if it could be easily tracked.

    Solemn article. It make me lost in thoughts.

  5. The IR should be a finger wearable device – get rid of the pen and get that thing ON your finger — this is a sweet hack !

    Jonny Lee, you are an inspiration!

  7. Jonathan says:

    I haven’t begun the hacking yet, but I’ve found a great candidate for an ergonomic pen-like IR device.


    It cost me about $4.

    Try using the latest Smoothboard 1.6 (http://www.smoothboard.net) which comes with autoconnect mode using MS Bluetooth Stack. It works so fine with me!

    “Exception: Wiimote not found in HID list”

    the red laser works fine , but not if directed on the TV-lcd screen , still it is ok on the wall , or projection.
