Wii Remotes are virtual motion controllers designed for the Nintendo Wii.

Role in the ProjectEdit

Wii Remotes are used as a way to send infra-red lights to the screen, which can then be read by the LED Pens which then transmit data to the computer, making the makeshift Smartboard. The version of Wii remote we are using is the standard Wii remote.


  • Originally we were going to use the Wii Remote Plus, but after encountering a few roadblocks and issues, we learned that standard Wii remotes, when using the Bluetooth Adaptors that we picked, work better and more appropriately (not to mention cheaper).
