    That's exactly it

    Fire gives off infra-red light, just like the sensor bar, it's just brighter. The sensor bar has 2 IR LED's in it, and the Wii calculates where you are in space using triangulation (yay trigonometry!). So when you put two candles to either side of your TV, it replicates the 2 sensor bar LED's, just brighter.

    So you can play your Wii from further away (also useful if you have a projector instead of a TV).

    I will never put a candle by my TV. It is a 20 in. tv and about a year old.

    It's actually kinda funny how most of the light energy emitted from a candle is below the visable spectrum. Seems kinda wasteful, all that energy and more than half of it you can't even see.

    Something about a side effect of the Carbon atoms being energized to incandescence.

    The reason candles work is not because they produce infra-red light, because they don't, infrared light is a wavelength of light that is invisable to the naked eye, if you look at a flame, you can see the flame and it produces visable light, the IR reciever in the Wii-mote can pick up any type of light, it can be a series of two candles, lamps, can lights, anything that produces light that you can get two sources of, When i got my Wii, I only used my sensor bar for a short time, then I used that lamps and can lights in my house, so if you see a source of light, you should be a ble to use it as a sensor bar, that's why of you have sunlight in a room, your Wii-mote won't focus as well and go crasy around the screen

    If you know anything about LEDs please put input, click on the link beliw, I can really use the help
