    Well, if your wii was far from your tv, then you can't exactly plug your sensor bar into the wii can you? So why don't you just plug it into the nearest power outlet. That way, your sensor bar doesnt need to be near the wii, only near a electrical outlet.

    Why not just place the Wii near the TV, no modification required

    Here is some interesting information I gathered while doing this yesterday:

    - When the Wii is in "sensitivity aiming mode" it variates the voltage from 5 volts to 7.5, to make the lights blink (like they do on screen at when doing the sensitivity aiming screen)

    - The sensitivity of the remotes is adjusted in the "Digital camera" (??) (I think a CCD) in the Wii Mote, no changes are made to the brightness of the sensor bar...

    - As stated by the guy who made his own sensor bar Make How to make your own sensor bar there are actually 5 lights on each side of the bar

    I have added a video of this on my site.. link below..

    Cheers

    S

    Next I am going to take apart the Wiimote and find out what it uses as a "sensor",... I have to get em back from my GF first




    When the Wii starts getting more "customizable", I want a mod that when you tap two Wii-motes together, they go "chink" like beer glasses...

    That's not always practical, say you have a projection television.

    Besides, what is this "no modification" stuff you speak of?

    BTW can anybody find info on what exactally the Wiimote is using to "triangulate" the signal? I am gonna tear it apart and look, but judging by the screen shots from the aiming sensitivy mode, my bets on a cheap digital CCD. .

    Anyone else think the aiming screen looks like "a live feed"...?

    Modifications are fine if they increase performance or make the gameplay experience all that much better.

    I agree... for the bold, even non performance based modifications are fun..

    I am not saying that modding the Wii case to look like a [?] block fromm Super Mario Brothers is on my todo list (hmmm), although I think case modding takes an array of talent....

    This particular modification allows me to play my Wii on say, a projection screen, or as I am attempting this week, the local 1 screen movie theater.

    Yeah.... Hehe here's preview..



    but basically bobby1212 has the idea.. i am gonna put the Wii Sensor bar on a stand in the row in front of the row we sit/stand/flail in... so the screen will appear to be full size in front of them, but the virtual "Window" that the user is interacting with is smaller...

    like bobby's picture below
