CTA Digital Inflatable Race Car Accessory for the Wii Unveiled at E3

We're beginning to think that part of the draw of Nintendo's video game console isn't the console itself, but the crazy accessories people can create for the games. From footballs to rowing machines, they really are all over the place. This time around, though, we may have hit the nail on the head. Because if you've played a few games of Mario Kart Wii, then you know holding that steering wheel accessory isn't nearly as cool as it should be. Why? Because you don't have a car to go along with it. Now you do.

And what's best of all, easily, is the fact that it's inflatable. You can stow it away anywhere you want, considering it will condense down to an empty shell of its former self. You won't need the additional steering wheel accessory anymore, either, because the race car comes with its own. And it turns! Sure, the car itself isn't a rumble seat, so don't expect the "real experience" here, but you're playing the Wii, so that shouldn't be high on your list of experiences, anyway.

It's compatible with Mario Kart Wii, as well as any other racing title out there. We have to say that this seat may not do much, but what it does do makes it look so good that we can't help but want one. No word on availability or release date, but as soon as we know something, we'll be sure to pass it along.
