The Wii Sensor Bar Goes Wireless

by Paul Strauss

Now that we know that the Nintendo Wii “sensor bar” doesn’t actually sense anything, rather just provides an infrared point of reference for the Wii-mote, it seems like it would only be a matter of time before we’d see a cordless variant.

Wii Wireless Sensor Bar

For those of you who don’t want to run a cable from your sensor bar to your Wii, or want to place your Wii at some distance from your TV, the $25 Wireless Sensor Bar provides a battery-operated alternative to the version that ships with Nintendo’s console. The replacement sensor bar runs for about 48 hours on a single Alkaline 9V battery. An LED indicator lets you know when the bar is turned on. The manufacturer claims a 3 to 8 foot range, which is in keeping with Nintendo’s spec (although my own tests have shown that the stock Wii-mote /sensor bar combo works pretty well from greater distances, especially in a dark room.)
