I found this story interesting. It’s on 1UP and shows the various stages of evolution of that Wiimote we now know and love.
The story and an image is on 1UP. It basically shows a bunch of wacky shapes, including a frisbee with a giant invincibily star from Mario. There are also some nice images at Aussie Nintendo of the initial Wiimote shape and button placement. Thought it would be a cool idea to show it off.
