Wireless Wii Sensor Bar

#1 Posted by MatPaget (1115 posts) -

Alright, so I saw these at a Wal-Mart the other day and I was wondering if anyone here owns one and how it works?
I always hated the fact that the sensor bar came attached to a long, thin wire and am very interested in the wireless sensor bar

 I do, and I'm pretty sure everything is IR so yeah it's pretty basic.  If I'm not mistaken though the sensor bar really doesn't do much so wireless or not. 
 p.s. Did you know you can just use TV remotes or candles instead?

My friend had one for his Wii. It worked well and it runs on batteries. Seems useful if you just want to get rid of wire or are taking your Wii somewhere.

All the Wiimote detects are two lights on top or bottom of the TV.  I believe you can even light two candles and it'll work that way.

Yea my friend has one and he says it's way better because the cheap, thin cord on the original always shorts out.

If you wanna go super cheap just get a couple of candles. Preferably those that are in glasses, you don't want wax all over your entertainment center.

The Wireless sensor bar also has the benefit of a wider range for bigger rooms, which is nice for people playing on bigger tvs and have to sit farther away.

I have one, it works fine but I tend to forget to turn it off when I'm not using it out of habit of not needing to with the wired one so it generally costs me a pair of batteries the odd time I turn on my Wii. I wouldn't have gotten it but the cord on my old one was cut by a vacuum and wireless was my only choice as a replacement.
 
So I guess if you're less forgetful than I am it would work.
