Something to strap on your Wii controller

GameKeeper offers a stylish solution for the sometimes far-flung game controller

NEW YORK--Finally, I can play tennis, bowling and other Wii games at full strength without fear of the dreaded fling.

Following on the heels of New York Fashion Week, Atlantic's GameKeeper has unveiled a fashion accessory at DigitalLife 2007 that doubles as a safety device.

The Wii Strap for the Wii controller fastens through the controller loop and onto your wrist with Velcro. But the thick band also looks as if it might double as a wristband. They'll be available this November in sets of blue and black or pink and green for $9.99.

Sorry, fellow WristStrong fans, Atlantic's bands don't have a cause other than protecting your flattie.

Still, it's never too early to start thinking about stocking stuffers for the gamer in your life.
