Demystifying the Wii sensor bar

This video details the workings of the Wii remote and sensor bar by demonstration, setting the record straight on exactly how Wii technology functions in plain English. The more people that watch this, the less likely we are to hear the completely impossible conjectures on future Wii titles.

The more time I spend with the Wii and the remote, the more aware I am of exactly what the machine is capable of. This is the source of many elated what-ifs as well as a number of crushed hopes and dreams. No bother, though. Better to be aware of the hardware’s capabilities than be consistently disappointed by software that you think could do better. Educate thyselves!
