  1. @ShadoShokk With certain software, such as smoothboard you can get better coverage, but honestly I have never needed more then a single wii-remote for “coverage” myself. You can also use a second wii-remote held in your hand as a “presenter”. This can be very cool. You can advance slides, or select different photos or songs, right from your couch, no need to be at the board.

  2. @rubinrs RE: “I want this!!” Rubinrs. I can sell you this. I have been selling these systems for more than two years. Just send me a private message and I will hook you up. By the way, I can hook anyone else up too. Check my videos, search for WBSW. I am an EXPERT on the Wii Interactive Whiteboard system.

  3. @Thebartbuddies12 RE: Is the laptop in this video a touch screen? Answer: NO, at least it wasn’t until Johny pointed his Wii-remote at it and fired up his software. What he is demonstrating at time 3:11 is that ANY laptop of computer screen can now be turned into a touch-screen. This technique does have a strong chance of scratching your laptop screen though, so watch out. I would put a piece of felt at the tip of my IR pen if I was going to do this.

  4. @Kriki232 On EBay, on my website, and on the sites of several other companies. This vid is almost 3 years old, and it has spawn a mini-industry.

  5. How are you detecting weather the pen it touching a surface to trigger a click (or drag)? Or are you turning the pen on only when you touch it to a surface w/ the button on the side?

  6. i think maybe setting up the wii mote like a camera to look at your display might be its downfall though if you can use some type of refraction to make it a little more stream lined it would be the next big thing
    dont get me wrong this is neat but it just needs that next step
