Shinobii Technologies roll out table tennis bat for Wii gamers

You could say that out of all the home consoles to date, the Nintendo Wii has had its fair share of zany looking (and useless) add-on peripherals from third party manufacturers. Why increase the risk of breaking something in your home by swinging the appendage of a tennis racket while you’re engaged in a furious tennis match in Wii Sports? Well, those who love table tennis on the Wii might just want to consider picking up this high-tech table tennis bat from Shinobii Technologies. Meant to be an actual 1:1 reproduction of an actual table tennis bat in size and weight, it also boasts the relevant wiring required to “talk” to a Wii console. A rechargeable keeps things going, where it will retail for $69.99 a pop. Pretty expensive if you ask us, considering the fact that you will need at least four of these puppies to play a doubles match. How far are you willing to go when it comes to increasing the realism stakes?
