Calling all Wii Fit fanatics and health-conscious Wii gamers. Convert your console's remote into an instant dumbbell with the upcoming Riiflex weighted attachment. It's available in 2.2-pound and 5.5-pound options and is on preorder in the U.S. for a $5 reservation fee.

There are two notable features worth highlighting here. First of all, the Riiflex does not obstruct any buttons, including the trigger, so you'll have full functionality of the controller. Furthermore, it's compatible with the nunchuck attachment.
