There have been plenty of Wii accessories released to (purportedly) make certain experiences feel more "authentic," like an attachable tennis racket, or a plastic sword blade. But this, this may be going too far: Gearfuse picked up on a new Wii accessory from CTA Digital that literally encases a Wii remote into a faux bowling ball. This assures not only an "authentic" bowling experience, but also that if you ever do forgo the safety strap and accidentally let this hulking husk go, you"ll have a spectacularly damaged television for your troubles.
"This ultra-realistic accessory allows you to mimic all the critical motions a "striking" performance requires," reads the product"s official description. "This Wii peripheral is the first of its kind to be fashioned after an authentic bowling ball, turning your wii-mote into the optimum performance-enhancing accessory!" This statement reminds us of the simple truth that some things are a "first of their kind" because they"re legitimately brilliant new ideas, and others because no one was ever crazy enough to bother making them before.
But if you do want this bowling ball accessory, you may have to do a little work to find it. CTA Digital has a list of retailers that carry their products, but no pricing or availability details for specific items.
