Wireless Wii Sensorbar

January 9, 2007 - If you're one of the many Wii owners unable to adequately stretch Nintendo's Wii sensor bar from your entertainment center to your television then you'll be happy to read of peripheral maker Nyko's latest development. The company at CES 2007 revealed its wireless Wii sensor bar and it may finally solve a number of issues for gamers whose living rooms don't follow the entertainment center template.

We should note that this is not the first wireless Wii sensor bar to hit the market. We recently reviewed another model from a third party, but the bar was both clumsily pieced together and unable to output more IR power than a standard wired bar -- hence, gamers could not sit farther than 10 feet away without the signal deteriorating.


Nyko's bar makes has happy for several reasons. First, it looks every bit as clean as Nintendo's official sensor bar and it even features a slick green light for added effect. It also fits snugly into the official sensor bar case that comes with every Wii system. But best of all, Nyko's little bar works from up to 25 feet away -- double that of Nintendo's own device. Players with bigger living rooms can finally play comfortably without dropping the signal.

Nyko's Wii sensor bar runs on four AAA batteries for a total of 30 hours life. It can be customized to turn off after a certain amount of time, too.

Look out for pricing and availability details soon.
Like the usb recharger for the wiimote, why does it take a crappy 3rd party to do what N should of done themselves? I'm writing a letter to my congressman.

*battery life thing is crappy, though. it just sits there. It should last, like, 1 mil hours.

wooo longer range, I would buy this for sure if a wire could be hooked up to the wii.

maybe if we wait a little bit maybe someone will make a even better sensor bar.
