So I'm working on this project with my wii remote where I want to reflect the IR light using reflective tape. But I want to make my IR light stronger. Are there objects i could use to make the IR light from my wii remote stronger (the sensor bar isn't cutting it). Would anyone recommend purchasing one of those IR light sources from a camera store or using some sort of object set in between my reflective tape and my IR source to expand the spectrum of which the IR light covers (therefore increasing its strength).....hmmmmmm????  :'(

there are LED lenses you could use to magnify the light but the best thing to do is get more LEDs.
