It may not throw as much caution to the wind as the Nintendo Star-mote we spotted a couple of months back, but this so-called "Pongle" Wii controller concept from Hayes Urban eschews its fair share of modern video game conventions nonetheless, hearkening back to simpler video gaming days instead. It's not all old school, however, with an integrated gyro adding some motion sensing to the standard twist and turn action, and a built-in speaker providing a "more immersive experience." Of course, the chances of it ever actually turning up in a form we can get our hands on are pretty slim, which is all the more saddening given our sudden craving for a game of Breakout.
