A Korean PhD Johnny Lee discovered something useful: by using the nintendo wiimote, he can turn any screen into a touch screen!
I tried it and played Crayon Physics Deluxe and other games , and found it really cool!
It's multi-touch feature reminds me of the Microsoft surface:
I'm thinking if I tie Cinemin Swivel, Wiimote and a PDA that supports WiFi together and place them on the desk in this way:
Then the cheapest Microsoft Surface is made! It's really cool that you can put a bluetooth or Wi-Fi enabled camera on the desk, then drag the photos into a phone . I'm crazy about this idea and recently I'm doing experiments on this. I bought a Optoma pico projector and borrowed my classmate's Kodak V610 bluetooth camera and reailzed some of the functions shown in the Surface promotion video.
Now the problem is: I want to turn it into a product (it must be a money-making business as it is so cheap!) ,but it's too hard for me to design the circuits , can anyone give me a hand on how to do it or tell me the possibility of building it?
P.S. I bought a ebox3300, a infrayed camera, a bluetooth adapter, what else do I need?How to connect them? Your help will be greatly appreciated!
