You may have heard rumours a while back about a drawing pad peripheral coming to the Wii? Well it’s nearly here and Kotaku has gotten some hands on time with it and by all accounts it’s actually really impressive.
The basic idea is simple, you plug your nunchuck into the pad so that all the button are still available to use and then you use the pencil (which has extra buttons) to draw things which then appear on the screen.
It’s hard to tell from the video’s how accurate it is but the feedback if generally good and this is something I can seriously see me picking up for the kids.
Check the video’s over at Kotaku
It’s going to retail for $70 and will come bundled with the pretty impressive uDraw software that allows you to draw pictures and then export them on a SD card as either .png or .jpeg.
