Air flow meter question

I took my intake hose off earlier and had a look down inside the MAF. It got me thinking, why will it not work if you just take the sensor out and put it into a bigger tube?

Because it is measuring airflow in a known area.
Change the size of the area and it will throw the calculation out.
