Wii're Ready To Believe You!

Ghostbusters Wii remote shell Last year's Ghostbusters: The Video Game for the Nintendo Wii came very close to letting players experience holding a neutrona wand to bust ghosts thanks to the Wii remote-centric gameplay, but it wasn't quite the same as wearing a proton pack.  Now a Ghostbusters fan by the name of Jack has bridged the gap by creating his own particle thrower Wii remote shell.  Back off, man.  He's a scientist.

Straight from Egon's lab, after months of Beta testing I bring to you the first ever fully fictional Wii-Proton Pack to be used in conjunction with the Nintentdo Wii version of the Ghostbusters Video game. The cyclotron features four blue LEDs allowing you to know which player is selected or active and the Blue Power Cell actually shows you how much power the pack has. The Thrower has been carefully designed in regards to ergonomics and function. The front of the wand has an area in which you can place the Wii-mote and the back handle is where the Nunchuck is placed. Since the Wii-mote has in internal speaker in it's ABS housing, when playing the game the pack makes all the iconic Ghostbusters SFX. And being that the Wii utilizes wireless technology, the wand is not tethered to the pack via a cord.

I usually look down on cheap cash-in remote shells, but this is a work of art.  Is it too late to mass produce these and offer them as part of a bundle package with the game?  I bet they'd sell very well regardless of cost.  Just about everyone in my generation would have to have one of these.  Doesn't that sound nice?
