CES 2009: The Wiimote from Cyberpunk Hell announced by Nyko

Vile sinners, gaze in awe and wonder at this instrument of darkness, and ask in confusion and horror why your Lord has forsaken you. This ... beast ... is the twisted brainwrong of Nyko, a third party Wiimote being hailed as "the most advanced Wii remote yet."

The Nyko Wand is similar to the Nintendo product we are all familiar with, except it looks a bit like it was designed by half-crazed, starving Oompa Loompas on the back of a thirty day coke binge. It uses Trans-Port technology, a term Nyko probably made up on the day, to add extra functionality to compatible devices. 

For example, the Nyko Wand will work with a new pistol grip that allows full force-feedback and a way to access the 1 and 2 buttons without having to reach over the top. Another major innovation is the gigantification of the buttons, which Nyko claims will enhance usability when the remote is strapped into one of the many gaudy accessories available on the market.

It's also batsh*t insane, in case you haven't noticed.
