Hahah. This is about as cool as the Lightsaber attachment
One of the virtues of Nintendo’s Wii console is that, far from promoting a couch potato mentality, the Wii’s motion sensitive controllers force you to take a more physical role whilst gaming and, in this respect, it can offer a fun means getting a decent cardiovascular workout and an interactive means of burning calories.
Now, thanks to the gloriously tongue-in-cheek WiiHelm you can cut your energy utilisation by up to 64% whilst gaming on your Wii by simply clipping your Wiimote to the WiiHelm and controlling games with your head whilst using the included foot pedals to control button presses.

Just how long it will be before we see games created especially for the WiiHelm is anyone’s guess, but we can certainly envisage something along the lines of an interactive head-bangers bash (can you head-bang in time to the beats?) – one for the rockers amongst you.
Okay, so the WiiHelm is an April 1st Joke, but it’s a good one and you can see a video of the WiiHelm in action as well as see the full specifications of this curious Wii Helmet below.
