    Because the light goes into the remote and the remote picks up the signal and sends it to the tv.

    Like when you take a flash light and make shadow puppets with your hands. If no light then no puppets. The shadows don't need a data cable. It is the same with the wii.

    And what kinda light did you use? Standard yellow light or blue led new flash light?

    Wow! If the sensor on a PS3 or XBox fail, there is almost no options to fix it.
    The Wii controllers use a wireless bluetooth connection to the console just the same as the PS3 (and similar to the 360). The sensor bar is not how the remote communicates with the console.

    The sensor bar is just two infrared lights (one at each end of the bar). There's an infrared detector in the front of the Wii remote that can see those lights. It can then check the position of those lights to determine where on the screen you are pointing the remote. So the sensor bar is basically sending, not receiving. You can see how the remote sees those lights by going to the Sensitivity settings. It shows a black screen with two white dots (those infrared lights from the sensor bar).

    This is also why the pointer disappears from the screen if you put your hand in front of the remote - you are blocking the remote's ability to see the sensor bar.

    So the flashlight basically then is doing the same thing essentially replacing the need for a sensor bar right?

    Exactly.

    You can use anything that emits infrared light. For example, people have used candles.
