No, the remote and sensor bar communicate using IR LEDs. There are 8 in total, so orientation is based on which LEDs you're pointing at.Originally Posted by NeMeZyZ
The Wiimote orients itself based on the IR LEDs and Bluetooth. The accelerometers are used to calibrate the Wiimote into 3D space.Okay, so what exactly are you saying is false?
When you put the two together, you have a controller that is oriented in relation to the TV, which makes sense... considering you're supposed to be looking at the screen while playing.
