Wii-diculous - Playing the Wii in a Movie Theater

This group of geeky fellas deserves a medal. Lead by Jon Peck, who is a Zend Certified Engineer and Technology Support Professional at the State University of New York at Oswego, Ed Forth and Chris Van Deuson created the ultimate Wii experience: movie theater Wii sports. The group figured out how to play their Wii in a movie theater on a 344" screen using a homemade wireless sensor bar. Geek out!

Jon Peck says:

One of my friends is a manager at a local movie theater, which uses a digital projector to show advertisements between features. After seeing the It Burns When I Wii video, we figured we could one-up it with the equivalent of a 344" television screen. We wanted to use my friend's Nintendo Wii in the theater, but we didn't want to have to deal with yards of cabling. Inspired by doctabu's design, I built my own wireless sensor bar for less than $20. Doctabu left out something important; a resistor, which is needed to limit the current to the LEDs.
