How to: Convert any surface into a touchscreen with a Wiimote

Here’s a unique workshop on how you can convert any surface into a “touchscreen” using a Nintendo Wii remote.

Tablets and all-in-one PCs featuring a touchscreen-enabled display are convenient and fun to work with. But a touchscreen monitor isn’t quite affordable for most just yet. Using a Wii remote (Wiimote) from Nintendo’s gaming console, you can make your regular monitor (LCD or CRT) behave as a basic touch panel. Given below is a simple workshop to convert almost any given surface (be it your LCD monitor, table surface or a whiteboard (or wall) along with a projector) into a touch-enabled surface. All you would need is a Wiimote, a simple utility from the internet, a Bluetooth dongle and an infrared light source. This whole workshop has been inspired by Johnny Lee from his website ‘http://johnnylee.net’.
