Sony files for motion sensor patent - Page 2

post #11 of 13
I shouldnt think so.

I mean, Nintendo have already beaten Sony to it, and actually made and released their Wiimote.

And surely Nintendo must have a similar patent for their controller.

And just FYI: I don't have a Wii either. When i first saw it i thought it was a bit.... crappy looking.

But TBH, if i was going to buy any console, it would be the Wii. Redsteel looks awesome

Where i work we have a Wii display machine. Its not been put on the shop floor yet, so i've had a good look at it. The console is quite small, and i think it looks smart in white. Makes me want one even more.

Me and my collegues keep asking if we can put it in the staffroom

I have a friend who told be you can use two candles instead of the bar for the Wiimote. Also, he just told me that he and his friends were playing Wii sports bowling in another room than the Wii was. I don't see how that could be so if the bar does the sensing. He told me the bar helps with the sensing, making it more accurate, but all of the motion sensing is in the controller itself.

The bar just helps the Wiimote dectect its position relative to the console. It just emits the infrared and the controller detects it. So it is quite possible that a candle would emit IR in the same spectrum.
