Introduction: Smoothboard, IR Pen Interactive Wiimote

How to use the IR pen on PC for touchscreen without a camera

Step 1: WHAT YOU WILL NEED AND HOW MUCH IT COST

hello my name is anuga ekanayake and i am the owner of AE_STUDIO

I have found a way to build a IR pen smoothboard touchscreen without using your camera and has no errors.

so here is what you will need:

1. wiimote (wiimote plus is also good)- $3-$60

2. IR pen- $6-$18

3.Bluetooth adapter (could be built in if you have a dell laptop)- $0.99-$189

4. smoothboard and bluesoliel software (Its free just get it from the links below)

smoothboard software: http://www.smoothboard.net/wiimotewhiteboard/

bluesoleil software ( you might need to pay for it to use it after the trial ends sorry) :http://www.bluesoleil.com/products/S00012010051900...

Step 2: STARTING OFF

First lets install the bluesoleil to the PC so you can connect you wiimote to PC

follow steps below:

1: setup the software

2: open the software

3: put your wiimote in front of your PC( in a distance)

4: on the back of the wiimote there is a red button near the batteries just keep pressing that so the 4 blue light on the wiimote would not stop blinking

5:click on the big yellow circle in the middle on Bluesoleil

6: click on the game controller on Bluesoleil

7: click on the mouse located in the top icons

8: wait til it establishes connection( make sure the 4 blue lights on the wimote is blinking all the time)

9: Bluetooth setup is finished go to next step

Step 3: SETTING UP THE PEN

Before we set up the pen we need to setup the smoothboard software

follow the steps below to setup the smoothboard:

1: setup the software

2: open the smoothboard air with duo

3: make sure the wiimote is connected to it

follow the steps below to setup the IR pen:

1: make sure the wiimote is at the right angle( in the smoothboard wiimote bar it should be atleast 25% for it to have a good angle)

2: go to calibrate

3: take out the IR pen and tap on your screen with the pen to hit the red targets( tap within a distance not too close, but you have to stay between the wiimote and the screen but do not cover you wiimote connection to the screen or it wont work)

4: if it works you just created a touch screen with a IR pen and now you can use it to do what ever you want

NEXT STEP IS ONLY FOR PEOPLE WHO DID NOT UNDERSTAND ME OR IF THIS DID NOT WORK RIGHT

5: GO TO THE LINK BELOW (SETUP VIDEO I CREATED TO HELP YOU) AND WATCH IT OVER AND OVER AGAIN TIL YOU UNDERSTAND HOW IT WORKS
