They're much less interesting (and much less offensive) than the styli we featured in our anti-gift guide last week, but Keys Factory's colorful Touchpen Leashes have two things going for them: Small grooves near the tip of the stylus for increased gripability An extendable, coiled strap that ...

The new Wii bag from Atlantic is pretty nice. We like the stripe, and the messenger bag design. We have no objection to this product. Were we the type to travel with consoles, we would seek out something like this. But the other new addition to their Gamekeeper line ... okay. Forget that every si...

We've already seen the Wiimote straps survive one revision, but now it seems that the oft criticized bands that keep your Wiimote from delving into your television screen (or window) could be seeing yet another improvement. Judging by an image showcasing what appears to be a brand new Wiimote wris...

Images are starting to surface that Nintendo has replaced the Wiimote strap again. Having reinforced the part of the Wii strap which caused mayhem back in the more innocent time of '06, Nintendo has apparently now fixed the part which wraps around our wrist by adding a locking clip.

We've all seen the standard teddy bear, Pikachu, and flashlight fobs, but they're all dead boring compared to this little life in vitro idea. Strapya-World, purveyors of all manner of straps and charms sell these small plants-in-a-jar in either pink or blue "bio-tech fertilizer" for just $9. The v...

This exotic wrist strap claims to make use of bio-ceramics, a composite of lead-free minerals, to douse your arm with far infrared rays and help with blood circulation. Though "far infrared rays" might sound sinister if you're not familiar with them and their uses, they are supposedly quite health...

Brian McConnell left his son, Adam, alone with a game of Wii Sports: Tennis for only a few moments to fetch a drink, but that was all the time the little demon needed. Not even a Wii remote strap could've saved Brian's plasma TV once the three-year-old set his mind on avenging a lost match. Brian c...

The Retractable Wii Sports Cuff replaces the subtlety and elegance of the Wii remote's wrist strap with a bulky band that we wouldn't be caught dead wearing. We don't doubt that the adjustable neoprene cuff has an agreeable fit, but did anyone ever find the original straps uncomfortable, if even not...

OK, we know the whole Wii as window to weight loss fad is big right now, but we can't for the life of us figure out what would inspire someone to create these prototype Wii-branded exercise weights and then shop them around to investors for mass production. For one thing, similar wrist weights are...

You could simply turn on the unit and check for yourself, but that would mean depriving yourself of that hypnotic glow that fills your soul with abject bliss. No, come to us instead! We will keep you well-informed. It's nothing earth-shattering, alas. Nintendo simply sent out a responsible message t...

Looks like Nintendo got tired of slapping its own branding onto every one of the bazillions of beefed-up replacement straps it's been sending out to butter-fingered Wii owners the world over. Reports are coming in of some sort of ghettostrap, possibly built by a third party, being sent out instead...

And not a minute too soon! After all that "excited" gameplay we've been doing over the holiday weekend, we were starting to think we might assassinate our damn HDTV with a tennis smash in Wii Sports. We ordered our straps on the 15th, the day the replacement program was announced -- meaning they c...

Just when you thought the story couldn't get any sillier, some fools are suing Nintendo over the Wiimote straps.
