Wacky Wii accessory: Wi-Bowl bowling ball

Talk about wacky Wii accessories. Digital CTA Digital is set to introduce Wi-Bowl, which looks like an actual bowling bowl. And it also makes the Knockout Gloves for Wii, a boxing accessory.

Mark it zero, dude. CTA Digital

We missed this little item at E3, but apparently CTA Digital has a bowling ball accessory in the works.

The thing actually splits in half; you stick your Wiimote inside, slip the wrist strap on, and start knocking down virtual pins. We assume there are some finger holes on the other side of the ball, but we doubt the thing weighs even half as much as a real bowling ball (that would be scary).

Of course, you're not supposed let go of the ball, and CTA Digital has a rather ominous disclaimer in all caps on its site:

USE EXTREME CAUTION WHEN USING THIS PRODUCT. CTA DIGITAL, INC IS NOT AND WILL NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGES RESULTING FROM THE BOWLING BALL ATTACHMENT.

No word on when the accessory will be released or how much it will cost, but it is compatible with the following Wii bowling games: Wii Sports bowling, Brunswick Pro Bowling, Ten Pin Alley 2, AMF Bowling: World Lanes, and AMF Bowling: Pinbusters!

CTA Digital also makes Knockout Gloves for Wii. We're not sure if these accessories are really stupid or really cool. Comments?

The Knockout Gloves are compatible with all Wii Boxing titles. CTA Digital
