The Nerdiest Nerd in Nerdtown

I borrowed my friend Tom's Wii on Friday and got my cheapo diy Wiimote powered whiteboard working just now. Whoohoo! I hit one small snag when I realized that I built my IR light pen using a normally-closed button instead of a normally-open one (which makes the light always on except when you hit the button, instead of the other way around). Oops. A trip to Radio Snack will solve that one though so no worries. I hooked my laptop up to the big TV and got things to mostly work, which is awesome.

I need to remake the light pen and then I'll post a video of it working. I may or may not post my first video of the rig working, it's of me writing I AM COOL on the screen of my laptop, hence the title of this post. :)
