Cheap Whiteboard using a Wii Remote

Tech in the Classroom

I came a cross something a while back that is really quite ingenious.  To make this whiteboard, the main things you need are:

  • A computer with bluetooth capabilities
  • A Wii Remote Control
  • A couple of small electronics (led, battery, wire,  bic pen) available for a couple of bucks from Radio Shack.
  • Recommended: (computer projector screen).

Johnny Lee provides the software to make it all work for free.  See the Video for a demonstration:
