Wii workout weights: Cute, but dumb

You don't need the logo...

In case you don't know yet, Wii workouts are the hottest fitness strategy since... Dance Dance Revolution . And, naturally, there are a whole host of entrepreneurs trying to capitalize on the possibility that Wii "athletes" might be willing to shell out some extra cash for Wii-centric fitness equipment.

One blogger even dreamed up a prototype for Wii Weights, a Wii-branded version of those strap-on wrist weights that you occasionally see people using at the gym. The thinking behind 'em is that it'll make your Wii Tennis workout a little more strenuous, and maybe help you lose those ten pounds slightly faster.

But um, why do the weights need to be Wii-white and branded with a logo? Can't you just head to your local sporting goods store and pick up some regular ones? I suppose there will always be some Nintendo-fitness fanatics who need to have everything match the console. But...psst...white shows sweat stains.
