New Media Club (NMC)
The New Media Club at UTS endeavours to find new and novel ways of creating, designing, and interacting with technology both as individuals and as a school. The parallel student club is known as Project 204a.
Our work includes using the UTS Smartroom as a development and implementation space for our work.
Part of our aim is to also help teachers in developing exciting new way to use the Smartroom for their own classes.

Things we need/want
Additional projectors: many uses include improving the resolution and minimizing shadows with the Multitouch Whiteboard by stitching the outputs of multiple projectors, creating an immersive display environment by projecting onto large screens around the room, or for the Multitouch Screen (FTIR-type)
More Wiimotes: for strongly improving the Multitouch Whiteboard and also necessary for IR Fingers.
IR LED array (assembled) or IR LEDs and stripboard to make an array: for IR Fingers.
Smartphones of some sort? For GPS, tagging things in space, permitting more users to use the room, etc.
Audio Server: PulseAudio to manage and control audio input from various systems/devices in the room and send it to the surround-sound system.
*Does anyone know how to setup PulseAudio ? The documentation I have been finding is a bit murky on how to set it up. -zmanji
