“python-whiteboard” is a program for the gnu/linux platform whose purpose is to allow you to operate a low-cost electronic whiteboard, using a wiimote and an IR pen. It’s based on Johnny Chung Lee’s idea. See his page. Also, look at the wiimote project page.
Also, there exists another python program (developed around the same time as this one) called gtk wiimote whiteboard. You can find it here
To download and try the program yourself, you’ll need linux compatible bluetooth hardware installed in your computer, and an IR pen.
If you’re using Ubuntu or debian, it’s rather easy: download the .deb package and install it (the install tool should install the dependencies, or at least inform you what packages do you need to install first).
You can obtain the latest (development) version using git. Then, install it directly:
$ git clone git://github.com/pnegre/python-whiteboard.git
$ cd python-whiteboard
$ make all
$ sudo make install
Or obtain the source directly.
