Build a Wireless Wii Sensor Bar for FREE

Categories: Wii Console Hack.

If you have some old remotes laying around you can build a Wii sensor bar with them.
More pictures after the jump.

“My brother borrowed my Wii and brought it back without the sensor bar PLUS when I take my Wii over to my Dad’s house. I needed couplers to stretch the Video Cables far enough to hook into his Projector yet still have the sensor bar on top of his Projection screen. These problems combined to make me curious about extending the Wii sensor bars cable.

The Wii Remote uses these Infrared LEDs to figure out its position. Well I built me one for free and I figured I would explain. ”

How do you connect it to the Wii?

You don’t, the sensor bar is only connected to the wii because the LEDs need power. It doesn’t transmit information.

I’ve seen the Mac Book potato chip clip sensor bar and the guy hooks it up to his book using USB… i have no idea about electrics so i was wondering if you could give a little information on how to wire up the IR LEDs to a USB without electrocuting myself or burning out the LEDs (if thats possible) thanks in advance 😀

[…] and wow is there a ton of technology packed in there. This sensor bar is the total opposite of the Wii Sensor Bar which has virtually no tech in it. After seeing what makes the Kinect tick I totally understand why Adafruit Industries has offered a […]

This design is spectacular! You definitely know how to keep a
reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost
moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Wonderful

Hit the DONE tab, and the phone should register and you can make and
receive calls from your Shore – Tel. Not only iit can bbe helping with all the bottom line,
itt is more stengthening the Apple fortress with all these integration. This provides the same overclocking and underclocking benefits as the above, but is specifically
for MIUI.

If you bought the i – Phone to use for content and internet only oor even if you plan to use it as an expensive
Skype VOIP phone, that is your business and yyou should be
able to do this without signing up for expensive cell phone service you do not need.
Because tthe attack is relatively simple, it is often used exfessively by not so experienced crackers.
We’ve seen dedicated servers with no publicly advertised services hacked within 3 hours of going live
due too easily-guessable passwords.

First, you can’t dpwnload more updates if u got MC when the servers were down. No need to speak to everyone as a hunt for
the important people are reported towards screen. Other retro titles
haven’t donme so well on WP7, so how does this high-speed power boat racing game fare.

Sophisticated though it is I shall now attempt to provide an exaustive report on how to hack a
facebook account and it is numerous ‘industries’. For instance, if you want to send a large file, such as a video or grfaphic file, to someone inn yohr organization,
but cannot do so ddue to restrictions on email attachmentt sizes, Dropbox will let
you upload the file and share it with your colleagues via a web
link. ABC News says the 14-year-old suspect also alleegedly bulied
anyone who was friends with Rebecca, according to police, and even encouraged
the 12-year-old suspect, who Rebecca’s one-time friend, to
turn on her.

If you attempt and advertise your site any type of more, they could penalize you and send you to the
bottom of the search results for being a bad boy.
Your mother has a Faceebook account and she’s listed as a friend
on your profile with her full nane displayed. We need to kerp analysing our every move
and monitor their effects.
