    Using flashlights as a sensor bar

    As the title states I am at the moment using two ordinary flashlights as a sensor bar. The adapter plug to my sensor bar got stuck in my wii last night and the cables ripped out. I tried hooking them up to a 9 volt but it didnt give me enough power. I then tried to use two flashlights to pick up the left and right signals and they work perfect. I feel like they almost work better than my old sensor bar... except for the fact that i would have to replace bulbs and batteries and that gets expensive but for now it works until a new bar gets shipped in.

    As long as it emits infrared, it'll work
    Don't the lights shine on you though? Maybe even get in your eyes?

    Havn't had spam in years... I feel your pain about being bored. I live with my grandparents as I am going through college... I know lets reminisce about how milk was 5 cents and you had to walk twenty miles to school in six feet of snow and liked it!
