I just found this low cost solution as well. The guy mounted two LED lights into a classic NES zapper and uses a Wiimote as a stationary sensor under the television. The trigger is wired to a Nunchuk that centers and fires. I'll definitely be giving this a shot once I get some free time past Christmas.
