    They made this a while back as a prototype, but im not sure if they ever did anything with it. Haven't heard anything recently.
    Personally, I would love to use something like this and i think it would really take advantage of the Wii's capabilities with FPS games.

    Yeah would be cool. I saw this picture back at E3 and I thought it was a Launch Item. I was wrong but it does eliminate the Nuncuk and Wiimote quite alot. Though If Time Crisis came out for it that Gun would rock. I'd get it

    That gun looks like shit to be frank, they need an insert for the remote and so u have a gun in one hand and the nunchuck in the other, ive seen a few fan made ones they look pretty good and not that hard to do

    I'm guessing if they make a Wiiboard it will be bluetooth, hence wireless. They may do this, either way I would expect a USB keyboard support update to come long before this. Just like MS hasn't made a Xbox keyboard, they just gave support for USB keyboards and you just use the one you like.

    If you notice that prototype gun, they use the nunchuk mounted behind the wiimote. So you are using the nunchuk as the gun trigger. This seems sorta strange because the wiimote has a trigger and seems to resemble a gun more. I'm not sure how controlling everything with 1 hand would work in a FPS.

    What would be really cool is if they came out with a gun like that for 1 hand wiimote+nunchuk then let you use a 2nd wiimote to navigate the level, switch weapons etc. Sorta like that pic someone make of a wii power glove where the guy had a wiimote strapped to each arm, with a possibility of holding a nunchuk in each hand.

    Think about it, all these 1 player, or 2 player only games where your extra wiimotes just sit there. There is nothing saying player 1 can't hold wiimote #1 and #2, and player 2 can hold wiimote #3 and #4. Infact I can almost guarantee at some point in the future we will see something like this used in a game, maybe a new boxing game for example.

    I want a gun, but not that one.

    The idea abuot having two wiimotes is what I was thinking about recently, even though it would literally get rid of your ability to move around with the nunchuck, they could have some sort of game like Mario Kart Double Dash, where all one player would need is to look around while the other moves

    and that gun, looks terrible. I can't imagine using one hand to control a FPS.

    Not true, if you use that wrist brace (the prototype) that straps the wiimote to each forearm, that leaves both hands free for nunchuks.

    See..

    Looking at the pic of the Zapper it looks quite long so could be held more like a shotgun. Then use the trigger on the remote and the analog stick on the nunchuck for movement.

    It still qould be quite awkward though.

    Oh, well that totally disproves my idea haha
    and I don't think its anyhting on the gun would feel natural, its like pc games, in a FPS [or any game for a pc] you immiediatly go to WASD, which is always stationary and you move the mouse around...which would be weird on a gun since you would be moving the whole unit instead of having a stationary part and another you move around.

    The mouse is the slowest form of input, the wiimote is sooooo much faster.
