The goal of this project was to create an interactive whiteboard that uses portable and inexpensive parts. Using a
Wii Remote, Projector,
, and a PC with the Smoothboard application,
this interactive whiteboard was developed as a proof of concept that was easy to setup using tutorials that are readily available on the web.
