    How does the Wii know what the Nunchuk is doing?

    I realize the nunchuk is attached to the Wiimote, but in boxing, for instance, how does the Wii know that you've punched with the nunchuk hand? It doesn't alway seem to respond as I expect it to, but overall it does seem to know when I've punched with it. Is there some wireless sensor in it? Otherwise, I don't see how the Wii would know you've punched with it.

    Or maybe something that senses a rapid movement, and it sends that to the Wiimote through the wire.

    Its motion based as well, similar to the Wiimote allowing for further functionality.

    In the example you've provided, the nunchuk has the exact same technology as the wii-remote. That is, when pertaining to sensing motion. Although, the actual name of the piece of equipment has temperarily slipped my mind.

    Keep in mind that WiiBoxing revolves around quick motions, and not actual punches. Turn remote to the side for hook, down for jab, or up for uppercut. This is usually agreed as one of the major downfalls of WiiSports, as it commonly confuses and discourages the gamer.

    No, accelerometers. The accelerator is the pedal you press to make a car go. Think about the word accelerometer. Meter of acceleration.

    The nunchuck, like the wiimote, has a motion detecting device called an accelerometer. However, the nunchuck's accelerometers are not as advanced and sensitive as the wiimotes, which is why it doesn't respond as well as the wiimote does.

    The information from the accelerometer is sent through the wire of the nunchuck into the wiimote, then the information is sent to the wii via bluetooth.

    A response to "Wii - DVD Compatible?"
    "I put a PS3 disc in it and the Wii wouldn't read it. WTF is this world coming to? If I buy a video game console, it better take and kind of media I want. Even if I were to dust off some of my vinyl LPs, the bastard better work."
