Wacky Wii goodies at CES

LAS VEGAS — I’m not sure if these are approved by Nintendo, but Hong Kong peripheral manufacturer iCon is displaying some crazy new remotes for the Wii at CES.

Vincent Chan, a Los Angeles-based sales rep for iCon, told me they won’t be available for at least a few months and prices won’t be disclosed until the end of the month.

That gives Wii owners time to make room alongside their Wiimotes and Nunchucks for:

The Wii steering wheel and tennis racket remotes. How about calling them the Wiiel and the Wiiacket?


The Wii “Light Gun.” This company has got to get with the naming program — this is obviously the Wiivolver.


The Wii “Golf Stick.” That’s got to be the Wiiedge.


This was called the Wii Baseball Bat, but it looks more like a Wiibrator.
