Apologies in Advance if this is Really Old News or Incredibly Dumb :-(

My B-I-L, a science master in NSW, was *very* excited about a demo by
another teacher.

[Includes youtube vid's]

"all" it needs is a PC, data-projecter, Wii-remote + bluetooth and an
Infrared (IR) pointer of some kind.

My BIL was stoked that for <$200 he could get a *useful* working
interactive whiteboard - the price of the Wii-remote.

Anyone seen this in action?

Know of a Linux/OSS solution? [Esp. something 'trivial']
