Motion controls and immersive gaming are big now in the videogame industry with many companies investing oodles of dollars trying to get gamers jumping about like a bunch of hyperactive goats.
Gone are the days of couch potatery! And with more and more jumping on the bandwagon this revolution isn’t going anywhere soon.
It seems that everyone wants in with the motion craze, even candy companies.
ENTER the Wiimote candy dispenser! This lovely trinket lets you hold and dispense your little imitation pez candy to all your little friends. Plus! It looks exactly like the motion controller for the Wii gaming console. How cool is that?! You’l get twice as many friends with this baby.
Its amazing how much more you want something if you just change the scale of it. In this case, making it that little bit smaller just adds this novelty value to it. They got everthing right. All the buttons, the lights, everything! Even down to the “official NINTENDO seal” umm… seal.
I saw a bunch of these at the Warehouse and I couldn’t resist getting one, despite the 4 dollar pricetag.
Kudos to the company that makes these, exploiting the consoles popularity to sell their twisted products to an unsuspecting public. They also have a sense of humour. The Wii has been known for promoting “healthy gaming” by introducing motion controllers that encourage gamers to move about and “excercise” while playing games so I found it funny that its likeness was used, of all things to make a candy dispenser.
But heres the chuckle buster. Theres a cheeky little note that advises you not to fire pez into people faces. Seeing how the Wii has a track record for causing injuries from “overenthusiatic” play, I found this rib tickling.
