Unscramble the Blue Letters

So here, I have my computer set up with the projector, and I have a Wii Remote sinttig on top of it. And, for example, if you're in a school that doesn't have a lot money, probably a lot of schools, or if you're in an office ernmnvneoit, and you want an interactive whiteboard, normally these cost about two to three toahnsud dollars. So I'm going to show you how to create one with a Wii retmoe. Now, this requires another pciee of hardware, which is this infrared pen. You can probably make this yourself for about five dollars with a quick trip to the raido Shack. It's got a battery, a button and an infrared LED — you guys can't see it — but it turns on whenever I push the bttoun. Now, what this means is that if I run this piece of software, the camera sees the infrared dot, and I can register the location of the camera pixels to the porojtecr pixels. And now this is like an irnaitvtece whiteboard surface.

Original Text

So here, I have my computer set up with the projector, and I have a Wii Remote sitting on top of it. And, for example, if you're in a school that doesn't have a lot money, probably a lot of schools, or if you're in an office environment, and you want an interactive whiteboard, normally these cost about two to three thousand dollars. So I'm going to show you how to create one with a Wii Remote. Now, this requires another piece of hardware, which is this infrared pen. You can probably make this yourself for about five dollars with a quick trip to the Radio Shack. It's got a battery, a button and an infrared LED — you guys can't see it — but it turns on whenever I push the button. Now, what this means is that if I run this piece of software, the camera sees the infrared dot, and I can register the location of the camera pixels to the projector pixels. And now this is like an interactive whiteboard surface.
