What would you build if you had this LEGO Wii-mote?

After last month's rather awesome Doctor Who Wii-mote in the shape of a Sonic Screwdriver, LEGO has created a Wii-mote you can build a castle on. Or anything else, in fact. So, just for a second, try to forget that a) it's for kids and b) it's bright red, yellow, blue and green. What would you turn it into?


The unit features all the regular buttons you'd expect to find on a Wii-mote, then adds in some of those raised circles so you can customise it with LEGO bricks. The ones included look pretty useless, but imagine if you combined it with LEGO Technic. How cool would it be (if you were a kid) to fashion a genuinely awesome weapon out if it? You'd be the envy of all your (kid) friends. The device is out this week in the states for $40.

So, just forget that it's a child's toy for the moment, and tell us: If you could get away with playing with LEGO, what would you turn it into? A Lancer? A Master Sword? Or maybe even Samus Aran's arm cannon? There's some pretty amazing LEGO stuff out there...

Let us know what you'd make in the comments, and we won't tell anyone you did.

    I'd build an awesome new gun with which to play Resident Evil IV, if I, you know, still played with legos.

    That is the most epic thing I've ever seen. The rifle, not the wiimote. I stand in total awe of that guy's skills.

    LEGOs are still cool no matter how old you get. It's just that the marketing is towards kids usually. Same with Pokemon really. It's a great game no matter how old you are, except that the marketing is usually towards kids so adults and teens avoid it thinking they'll look "childish" if they play it. I might end up having to get one of these haha.

    That Lee enfield is amazing. I want one soooo badly

    That's the most amazing Wii peripheral I've seen in my life. Forget the kid qualifiers, LEGOs are awesome no matter how old you are (they're just too damn expensive to justify half the time, though).

    I don't think it would matter what I would try to turn it into; it would ultimately pale in comparison to that rifle. Maybe if I made a working Avenger vulcan cannon...

    I tried to build a Lego pistol once. It worked pretty well? Anyways, that's actually cool. I'd care if I didn't already have enough Wiimotes as is.
