Nyko Wireless Nunchuck takes the wire out of the Wii waggle
Nyko has revealed the Wireless Nunchuck, a Wii Nunchuck peripheral that works without any cables between itself and the Wii remote.
The Nyko Wireless Nunchuck connects to the Wiimote via a little wireless dongle that clicks into the controller's accessory jack. Once plugged in, tapping the connection buttons on the dongle and the Nunchuck syncs them together, letting the Nunchuck work as if it was physically connected to the remote. The Nunchuck runs on two AAA batteries, which Nyko claims can provide up to 30 hours of gameplay. It has all the same features as the original Nunchuck, including analog stick, C and Z buttons, and even an accelerometer for games that use the Nunchuck for motion controls.

The Nyko Wireless Nunchuck ships in late January/early February and will retail for about $30.
