Nyko Wireless Wii Nunchuck
Accessory maker Nyko has announced an important add-on for Nintendo's Wii game console. While the system's remote has always connected to the console wirelessly, the accompanying "nunchuck" controller has traditionally remained tethered to its sibling, meaning that players can only hold it s short distance away. Debuting at next month's CES expo will be Nyko's Wireless Nunchuck, with comes with an adapter that plugs into the remote's bottom port.
Although the adapter adds to the remote's length, the nunchuck itself is extremely similar to Nintendo's own, complete with the top-mounted analog stick and front-mounted buttons. One important change is an optional wrist strap, to prevent accidental throwing now that it is not anchored. Nyko has not revealed prices or release dates. [via IGN]
