CES 2008: Punch with some proper Wii boxing gloves

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.

    Looks like it would be painful to hold onto the wiimote & nunchuk while wearing those. Need gloves that hold the controls plus have resistance bands running around your back so you can get a real workout.
