While wandering around the Sands hall at CES today, I bumped into a Chinese company called Shenzhen Koonhome Technology, who were showing off some Wii accessories. The most quirky was the Wii Boxing Gloves.
Basically, they’re a pair of lightweight gloves, which you strap onto your hands for playing, well, Wii boxing. They’re not controllers, mind – you still have to hold the Wiimote and nunchuk. But the idea is they get you more in the mood.
I did ask if they’re on sale already, and when they might be coming to the West, but the man on the stand thought I was just trying to blag his only sample. I must learn Chinese before next year’s CES to avoid these kinds of misunderstandings…
