    Building a custom Sensor Bar

    Ok, almost all of us now know that the Sensor Bar included with the Wii is simply a bar that emits an IR signal from two positions... and as some of us experienced, it isn't that great. So, I have decided to build my own from the ground up with 3 sensors with a range of 100 feet and an upgraded power-supply. Here are the parts:

    2 or 3 IR transmitters with a MUCH better range than the stock Nintendo one.

    A powersuply for them... I am hoping I can solder up a 9V battery pack enclosure to make it wireless.

    I am currently working on finding the best quality parts then my next step of "pre-production" will begin where I decide on how to go about my little project.

    Haha, I might make a few more if it works better than the regular... which it most definitely will, for whoever wants them.

    You can use lit candles for the same effect, but I'm not sure how long the signal goes

    You can only do that in the dark... I am talking about a super Sensor Bar with a 100 foot range. Perfect for people with projectors, big rooms, or people who just want better accuracy.

    You play with the lights on!? Anyway.. sounds like a good idea.. I bet it'd be neat playing from another room.. You think Nintendo will make a stronger Sensor Bar further down the road?
