    It would be useful for people with projectors, or people who disconnect their wii a lot to bring it to friends houses.

    yep, and for everyone else the standard one should be more than enough.

    I saw a picture of it somewhere and it had the normal sensor bar on top, this new one's really big compared to the normal one. I might get it after the price comes down just because I don't like having wires everywhere

  6. i believe nintendo is comming out with their own line of wireless bars in march i thought? its like 24$ or something along those lines....that i deff want to get considering GreenEnvy hit the nail right on the head. i always bring my wii to other peoples houses. i normaly just wrap the wire longways around the wii bar but even so, anything to eliminate wires and "extra steps/work"

    I'll stick with the regular scensor bar because it comes with a stand, it's smaller and it looks better.
     

  8. i lost my stand and im majorly pissed about it! its either at my house somewhere covered in clothes (when i get home, i dont believe in laundry hampers apparently lmao) or at my BFs house covered in ammo! (dont ask lol!)

    The wireless sensor bar is a great idea but is flawed for the simple fact that anything wireless has to run on batteries. In this case the sensor bar I saw yesterday at my local game store was retailed at $20 and runs on 4 AA batteries that means I gotta get more rechargable batteries. Which would cost about $10. So altogether I'll be spending like close to $30 to $35 dollars to maintain it. I would stick with the original sensor bar.

    I would rather have a remote sensor bar, instead of wireless. (no batteries to change, and the Wii can be far away from the sensor bar)

    Doesn't somebody make a simple AC adapter that plugs into the sensor bar plug? I've seen some DIY sets.

    DIY - Wireless Sensor Bar

    I think you could just take the above project and attach a power cord instead of the battery holder. You will have to adjust the resistors to offset the 110v from the wall. I read somewhere you can get more power full Infrared LEDs, so in theory you could create a bar with longer range than the standard one.

    Of course, someone also managed to use candles as a sensor bar too. That would make it wireless and smell nice.

    :lol: :lol: :lol: i just checked out the candle sensor bar videos on youtube and the idea cracked me up!

    i know that the wii is backwards compatible and all, but lets not throw us back to the stone age! we'll soon be tossing rocks at the screen!

    Hey guys, I just bought a wireless sensor bar from a third party company called ASiD (I'm from Canada so this was one of the few available). It's quite crappy actually, it does have the ability to work with up to 100 feet between the Wii console and the wireless sensor bar, but only 8 feet between the sensor bar and any wii-motes being used for gaming. I'm gonna return this piece of **** and I'm thinking of getting the Nyko one, which claims to be able to sense wii-motes from up to 20 feet away, has anyone else bought it or seen it in action, and can verify this?

    actually with my wireless sensor bar the wii can be 100 feet away bahah, and it's great for me cause i'm always taking to toa friends house and what not, and it used to get tangled up like CRAZY and it's just as effective


    oh and if you want to save money on the wii and double aa batteries get rechargeable ones and a battery charger, i got 8 batteries and it is very convenient, never have to search my house or run to a store for more batteries
