What is that little strip in all those pictures. Is it like a sensor for the remote or what?
yes you get 2. 1 for the side of your tv and 1 for the top or bottom.
Cool stuff... hadn't seen this particular accessory till now!
Not me either. I was kind of expecting us to be able to play the game without the use of a sensor bar but I don't mind it either way.
What? Two? That's not what I've heard so far. This is getting to be more of an issue for people with front projection if that is true.
Like what does the wire attach to? what does it do?
It blasts IR and the wiimote senses it. It is part of the system that (along with the motion sensor) that lets the wii know what you are doing with the wiimote in order to react.
the sensor itself has adhesive to stick to your wall(for projectors) or side/top of your tv and the wire attaches to the usb of the wii.-_-
I don't think it attaches to the USB of the wii, I think it ataches to the back video port of the Wii, but I could be wrong.
In one of the pics of a wii over at ign they showed the port at the back lableled "sensor bar". Don't quote me on this but that may just be where the sensor bar plugs in.
the plug doesn't quite look like usb, its probably another specially made nintendo connector. i would assume it would have a specialized port (probably on the back) to plug into and not take up on of the usb peripheral slots for a required attachment
would you have to get bigger/smaller sensors if you had a big/ small tv???
Most unlikely. My guess is you do a calibration like you do with a palm pilot that define the boundaries of the screen.
im very sure you dont get 2! nintendo wouldnt do that, itd make your tv look stupid ,and for the people with small tv's, it wiuldnt be possible, so , just to let you know, you only get ONE for the top of the screen,
dont underestimate 21st century technology, we can make a wireless remote perfectly well with one strip thankyou very much!
sorry mr techno
Yea because if you get 2, then the whole remote will get messed up with the signals and stuff.
It doesnt make much sense if i have a really small TV or a massive widescreen, does that mean i need a longer or shorter sensor bar? i dont think its really needed, or actually true, can someone please put a link to the site.
theres never been a need for sensor bars with light guns but i guess they dont really accept input. aka no rumble or sound. but then again thats done by wireless
is wht i thought, also if true will mean no need for 2 sensor bars
Does anyone know more about the adhesive? Will it wear out if continuously stuck on and taken off surfaces? Will a wireless motion bar eventually be made?
