Johny’s Lee at CMU has some really cool projects using the Wii remote. One of the is using some software he wrote along with a standard Wii remote to create a large scale Interactive Whiteboard that is only limited in size by the size of your wall. The really cool thing is that because the Wii works the way it does, you can use two pens simultaneously to get a two point touch screen/system. The whole thing isn’t an “out of the box” solution, nor is it at the same level of detail and control as a commercial solution, but for less than $100 total, it’s pretty darn cool!
The folks over at Geospatial Training Services have focused their last couple blog posts on their GeoChalkboard blog on Arc2Earth. The most recent was spurred on by James’ post from April titled “The Day ArcIMS Died” and focuses on rolling out web content with Arc2Earth, the other from last week looks at using Arc2Earth to create extruded data in Google Earth.
