MacGyver Boards is the official name of this project.


A "MacGyver board" earns its nickname from MacGyver, and its really a makeshift SMART Board with Wii Remotes, Bluetooth Adaptors, Computers, LED Pens and Projectors. By using a computer, we are able to project an image onto a surface. Once there, we can sync a Wii Remote to a Adapter that is plugged into a computer, which sends an infra-red signal. The LED pen then sends another signal, which is registered on the Wii remote, making the "SMART Board" the ability to register drawings and writing on any surface.
