  8. 8. Wii Remote Technologies <ul><li>The WII remote consists of lots of different circuits. Here are just some of them: </li></ul><ul><li>Power button </li></ul><ul><li>Rumble pack </li></ul><ul><li>Internal speaker </li></ul><ul><li>Player LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes) </li></ul><ul><li>Bluetooth chip </li></ul><ul><li>Sync button </li></ul><ul><li>Plug in connector </li></ul><ul><li>Accelerometer </li></ul>Wii Motion Plus
  9. 9. Electromagnetic Spectrum
  10. 10. Experiment 1: Sensor Bar <ul><li>What would happen if I move the sensor bar in different places to see if it would effect the Wii remote? </li></ul><ul><li>1.Make sensor bar vertical. </li></ul><ul><li>Results: When you turn the sensor bar sideways the cursor disappears from the screen, but then it was actually smart enough to figure out that the sensor bar was on its side. The only thing is that when you go off screen it gets confused again. </li></ul><ul><li>2. Move sensor bar 1ft to the right. </li></ul><ul><li>Results: Exactly what I predicted. </li></ul><ul><li>3. Move sensor bar 1ft to the left. </li></ul><ul><li>Results: Exactly what I predicted. </li></ul><ul><li>4. Turn sensor bar upside down. </li></ul><ul><li>Results: It did absolutely nothing. The lights on the sensor are identical. </li></ul><ul><li>5. Remove the sensor bar completely. </li></ul><ul><li>Results: The curser didn’t even show up on the screen. The Wii remote didn’t know where the TV was. </li></ul><ul><li>6. There are 2 positions where the sensor bar can go, above the TV and below the TV. Also you tell the Wii where it is, so I are going leave the sensor bar above the TV, but tell the Wii that it is below the TV. </li></ul><ul><li>Results: It was the opposite of what I thought it was below where I was pointing. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Experiment 2: Building the Sensor Bar <ul><li>What you need: </li></ul><ul><li>4 AAA Batteries </li></ul><ul><li>Switch </li></ul><ul><li>68 Ω Resistor </li></ul><ul><li>2 infrared LEDs. </li></ul><ul><li>Bread Board </li></ul>4 AAA Batteries Resistor 2 Infrared LEDs
  12. 12. How the Circuit works <ul><li>How did I make sure there was enough, </li></ul><ul><li>but not too much current running through the LEDs? </li></ul><ul><li>By using Ohm’s Law! </li></ul><ul><li>Named after Physicist Georg Ohm </li></ul><ul><li>The Current (I) = Voltage (V)/Resistance(R) </li></ul><ul><li>I = 6V/68 Ω </li></ul><ul><li>Current (I) = 0.088A or 88mA </li></ul><ul><li>The current flowing through the diode enables </li></ul><ul><li>the diode (or LED) to emit light -> </li></ul>
  13. 13. Testing the Homemade Wii Sensor
  14. 14. Negative Health Effects <ul><li>These are just 3 problems out the hundreds of them. </li></ul><ul><li>-Obesity </li></ul><ul><li>-Carpal Tunnel </li></ul><ul><li>-Tendonitis </li></ul>
  15. 15. Retirement Homes and Rehab Centers <ul><li>Older adults using Wii to keep active. </li></ul><ul><li>Keeps seniors socially active. </li></ul><ul><li>Promotes positive attitude and it’s fun! </li></ul><ul><li>Rehabilitation: </li></ul><ul><li>Strengthen muscles </li></ul><ul><li>Easy to use at home. </li></ul>
