I have a wii and plan to hook it up to a projector that displays on a big screen.
The problem though with this setup is that the sensor is not long enough to reach
the front of the screen, or if it does, the wire is out in the open ready for anyone to accidentally
trip over it and knock the console down or the sensor. It's a real hassle.
So I read about the 2 candles trick. It's not bad, but I don't like the idea of leaving burning
candles around the house and around kids playing. I read that basically all the sensor does
is emit IR light and the remote can detect it to triangulate its position to the console via bluetooth.
I'm wondering, are there any other ways to emit IR light without burning candles? Would some sort of
IR light bulb work? Do they sell such a thing? My last option is to just buy a 3rd party wireless sensor
that requires 4 AA batteries to work.
I would like to know if there are any other devices that emit IR light that I could use instead of 2 candles?
