Nintendo Wii has revolutionized the gaming world. To see how it has done so, you have to try it yourself. It gives a unique gaming experience for the whole family. You don’t just play games, but experience it. What stands Nintendo Wii out of its competitors is its Wii Remote which has motion detection technology. Keep on reading to see why your home is incomplete without Nintendo Wii.

Wii Remote:

You can use the remote for swinging a racket, bat or ball. In a racing game, the remote becomes your steering wheel. All you need to do is pick up the remote and get ready for the pitch. The Wii Remote also packs a speaker, rumble feature, and external extension connector for other input devices.

Sensor Bar:

The Sensor Bar has two points of infrared light that the Wii Remote uses to sense its position in a 3D space. Wii Remotes can be used 6 to 10 feet away from the TV screen. The Sensor Bar can work with 4 Wii Remotes simultaneously.

Wireless Connectivity:

- Wi-Fi

- Bluetooth

- 2 × USB 2.0

- LAN Adapter (via USB)

- Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection (for online connectivity)

Wii communicates wirelessly with the Internet via your router or a Wii LAN adapter. The console can also communicate and connect with other Wii systems through a self-generated wireless LAN, enabling local wireless multiplayer on different television sets.
