Why go to all that trouble of building your own sensor bar when instead you can just stick a few candles on your television? That's right, the Wii sensor bar has been rendered completely unnecessary since intrepid gamers have begun replacing it with odd candles from around the house. Our masters over at Joystiq decided to test it for themselves, and they made a helpful video illustrating the experiment.
Candles for the sensor. What will they think of next? We're guessing legions are out there testing this for themselves, just because it's good, zany fun. And hey, just think -- if the power goes out, you're already covered. Now if only someone would make a Zelda-themed candle -- preferably in red and blue.
