Wii Breaks More TVs than Elvis

Carbon nanotubes have one of the highest tensile strengths of any material known to man, which is how we know that the Wii wrist strap is not made of them. The Wii strap has been breaking at inopportune times all over the country since the Wii’s release in mid-November—and the results have been disastrous enough to warrant a few news stories and at least one blog dedicated to documenting the destruction. Because after you’ve bounced a video game controller off your laptop and into your brand new plasma tv—you’re going to take a picture. And we’re going to laugh. In all seriousness, Nintendo might have a little problem on its hands if these “accidents” are caused by a faulty wrist strap. May we suggest Kevlar next time?—MEGHANN MARCO
