News Nugget – Lego Wii controllers won’t brick your console

Two of our favourite things – Lego and motion-control – get together

Just when we thought we were running out of excuses to recommend the Wii, along comes this – the Lego Wii-mote.

Containing all the wizardry of a standard controller – accelerometers, internal speaker and rumble effects – you build it yourself using standard Lego connections. That means two things: firstly, that you have the coolest gaming controller ever; and secondly that you can build it into whatever shape you want (pending your bricking skills being up to the task).

It’s £35 from and available for pre-order right now.
