    Check it out!! Awesome Project for the kiddies

    So I came across this and thought "Wow! my kiddos would have a blast drawing on my walls lol.. they do anyways! But I thought this was a pretty cool Idea. you can get a kids projector new for like 30-50 dollars in the right places.

    There is a difference between, red and infra-red LED. IR-laser pointers, to use from the couch are quite expensive and if you crank the power up you can easily heat things up, e.g. hurt yourself (invisibile light beam). His camera is sensitive for IR letting the LEDs he uses appear red in the video.
    He has also a nice tut on how to build a fingertip tracking device with the wiimote, some LEDs and some reflecting tape.
    Really looking forward for some spare time to tinker on such stuff. Maybe next year hehe

    <--suggestions helped? press Thanks

    I'm 99.9% certain this has been posted here at least once already. Regardless, thanks for it even so.

    Wii remote? check. Projector? check. Screen? check. Patience to set this all up? no where to be seen. I may try one day when I am bored. Thanks for the info!

    Just dont buy a powerful laser pointer and melt everything. "It works my controls show up on the screen! where did the screen go?"
