    Im sure someone can explain it better then me but basically all the the sensor bar does is send or Infrared signals and candles also do this, The sensor bar doesn't actually sense at all but give the Wii-mote some idea as to where the T.V is. I hope that helped

    I was able to achieve the same effect with a lava lamp.

    Yes, that's exactly what the sensor bar does, it just consists of 5 infrared light bulbs per side (you can see them if you look at it through your cel phone camera or a digital one), so any other infrared light source should work, as long as they are positioned correctly (the distance between them).

    It's been quite a winter. First I find out you can throw boiling water into the freezing air to make snow and now this! No, it doesn't take much to excite me :D
