Wii Sensor Bar Candle Trick

About: I am the type of person that tries to make the most out of life. I take what opportunites I can and make the most of them. I am a DIY type of person that likes to build stuff: obvious since I am here on this...
Materials: television, electricity, wii, candles, wii remote, paper towels


1. Turn on your wii and television.

2. Put the candles in front of the television.

3. Light the candles.

4. Position the candles so that they are a certain spacing away from each other as well as you are positioning yourself a certain distance away from the candles.

5. You will have to fiddle around with the spacing, but once you get it, the candles will act as a sensor and will work just as well as a regular sensor.
