Sun: 1, Wii Sensor Bar: 0

So the Nintendo Wii has that fancy pants wireless Wiimote thing. And because it allows full gyration controls the Wii needs a fancier sensor. Enter the sensor bar that we first saw a couple days ago. It seems if sunlight is shining directly into the sensor barit will not function properly or at all.

Ironically this flaw was discovered in a Wii demo room at Nintendo World. The Wii demo stations were set up by a window and at one point light was shining directly in and therefore disabling the sensor. Better start rearranging those rooms, kids. Or boarding up the windows (if they aren't already).
