wiimote Interactive White Board

This is the project that began it all. In August 2008 I had heard that it was possible to use a Nintendo wiimote control to make a fully functioning Interactive White Board. I love experimenting and had to give it a go. In the October holidays of 2008 I got it working so well that I couldn't stop there. This was amazing. For under $80 I had an IWB for my class. The children were so pleased. This video shows how I start up the IWB and its many uses and applications.
