I have the thing set up, and it actually works pretty well. Granted, this is the result of hours spent making minor adjustments to how the wiimote is positioned. I bought a ceiling mount, and while it helps keep the wiimote pointed at the right angle, it is, well, on the ceiling. I am not one for heights and I have to actually stand on a desk to position it. I have probably stepped up on a desk to position that thing about 50 times this week, and while that is the closest I've gotten to the gym, it still isn't quite working perfectly.
I never considered that I have to leave the wiimote on all the time. Also, I have to recalibrate the thing any time the projector is bumped. Finally, to top it off, I can't even hook the computer that has the interactive software to the internet. What type of interactive stuff (for lack of a better word) am I going to be doing with students on said whiteboard? All I can come up with is power points so far. I would love any suggestions.
Off to enjoy Veteran's Day eve!
