    Infrared Thingy

    What is the difference between the regular sensor that the wii comes with,, versus the one they sell in the stores???
    Does it have more range?

    I would appreciate any help.

    The ones in stores are sometimes wireless, or then no different. Just if you break it, you can get a new one. And I'm assuming you mean sensor bar.

    Edit: I'm guessing Shiftfallout has a good explanation.

    the camera in the wiimote picks up infared lights that are shot out of the sensor. Basically all that sensor does is send out light only the camera in the wiimote can see, the wiimote then uses that to judge where it is in proportion to the tv screen. Very simple really.

    The one they sell in stores might have a stronger infared light, thus allowing the camera to pick up the motion from farther, but the stock sensor should be fine as well.

    not really. How big is your tv? cause theres no reason to be all the way accross the room if the tv isnt a projector. They also dont have to be wii specific, you can find anything that shoots out the rays. People have been known to make their own. The Sixaxis controller which the ps3 uses actually has a sensor like bar inside the controller itself. Pretty trippy stuff.

    It's possible to make one out of 2 remote controls. Here's a video about the sensor bar, showing that it works with two remotes http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JTGSkYRDpWY

    But this is the way to do it stylishly!
