The Wii Sensor Bar (Japanese: Wiiセンサーバー) is an accessory for the Nintendo Wii console that captures the player's movements and transmits them to the console. The Sensor Bar consists of two infrared LEDs mounted at the ends of a long, narrow strip. The strip is placed either above or below the television screen. The Wii Remote, which is held by the player, contains an accelerometer and an infrared camera that recognizes the position and orientation of the Sensor Bar. This allows the console to depict the player's movements in real-time on the screen. The Wii Sensor Bar enables the player to engage in a variety of motion-controlled games. The Sensor Bar also detects the player's distance from the screen.
