    Well, I was in the middle of playing TP when my dad called me... I pressed the HOME button and turned to my left... (Way away from me sensor bar) And I noticed that my Wii pointer was still MOVING! What in the world? I was curious so I decided to unplug my sensor bar and see if it still worked... And the pointer was still moving! Then I noticed my COAL STOVE glowing red hot coals!!!! NO WAY! I aimed my wii-mote and it worked almost perfectly! The pointer skipped around a little but not much... It actually worked almost as good as my Sensor Bar! I was amazed!!! I thought inferred was only technology but red-hot coals work just the same!!!!

    The sensor bar isnt actually required at all, the real sensor is in the Wii Mote itself. Inside the Wii Mote is an Infrared Camera, so actually, if you have any kind of infrared light around you can just point it at that if you want to~although it may be a bit more dificult. Never heard of it working with hot coals or candles tho lol.

    Infrared is basically heat isnt it? If you point it at anything hot, like hot coals, a fire, candels, they should all work.

    Infra-red is the spectrum of electromagnetic energy that humans sense as heat.

    It's just infra-red. The sensor bar does not actually "sense" anything

    Human bodies work just as well as candles for that. Pretty cool, too. Point the remote at my mom and it appears on the screen. Its pretty cool.

    Yep it detects by light so if they was something like a candle or sometimes if I point it something red it even sometimes appears. I once used my friend as a sensor bar it was cool.

    Not light, infra-red. Technically it is light, but not visible to the human eye.

    Thats cool, I knew they worked with candles but I would have never guessed them working with humans or coal ovens.
