Here is my quick test of concept using my MBP, a DVD remote for the IR LED, and a wii remote:
This second video shows the original software's developer demonstrating the possibilities for this fun & useful concept:
There you have it. If you are already using this wiimote whiteboard in an interesting way share it with us in the comments below.

It's a countdown to my birthday! The button on the bottom, when clicked, takes you to my Amazon.com Wishlist so you can buy me a nice present. If you want a copy of my widget for you computer, you can get it here (ZIP file, 3.9 MB).
Disclaimer: Use my widget at your own risk. As I said, I built it using a modification of a tutorial from Apple, and therefore I do not know what I'm doing.
If you are a console gaming enthusiast and you've never seen the Angry Video Game Nerd on YouTube, you'd better go watch his videos right now! In addition to his reviews of old, shitty games, AVGN also has a segment called "You Know What's Bullshit?" in which he rants on about whatever happens to make him upset at that particular moment. His second episode on the penny was featured on CNN.
Shown here is episode 8. Its about printers, so it fits with my intended technical gizmo blog theme. Enjoy!
Also, since my last post, I got a Mac. A MacBook Pro, to be exact. I had an iMac a few years ago, but it died in an involuntarily, self-inflicted incident (I think there's still a blog entry about it here). Now I'm back in Mac, and it's good to be back.
So, I saw Blogger has a Dashboard widget for quick blog entries. I'm trying it out now. If you can read this, the widget is operational.
