A wiimote whiteboard is a simple and inexpensive way to create an interactive whiteboard with a wiimote, an ir pen, and a computer. The original hack was made public byJohnny Lee in 2006. Since then, there have been several subsequent hacks to port the software to mac and linux operating systems. There are a number of resources about wiimote whiteboards all over the internet, but this wiki will show you the process that the Jesuit Middle School of Omaha students in "Advanced Problem Solving" applied during the summer of 2008. It also focuses on building and operating a wiimote whiteboard using a Mac.
