New and Innovative Ways to Hurt Yourself With a Wii

"10 Gaming Gadgets That Will Make Us Hurt Ourselves"
Wired Game | Life (July 17, 2009)

"Maybe videogames are hazardous to our health — just not in the way people usually think. Since the success of the Wii and its motion controllers, companies looking to cash in on the videogame fitness craze have concocted loads of accessories and controllers designed to get players jumping and flailing around the room.

"It's all fun and games until somebody gets a Wiimote in the eye. Here are the game accessories we think have the greatest potential for damage...."

The list starts with the Wi-Bowl. It has a wrist strap - but I'm with the author: given humanity's track record for doing the daft, it won't get used when it should.

Of course, we don't hear about all those people who didn't lob a bowling ball through their television screen. I like to think that common sense, if not obviously present, is lurking just below the surface in many people.

The last item, #1 in Wired's opinion, is the Wii Car-Lighter Adapter.

I am not making that up.
