Asus goes Wii with Eee Stick

Those white desktop Eee PCs from Asus already looked suspiciously like a Nintendo Wii console and now Engadget reports Asus has created the Eee Stick - a pair of motion-sensing game controllers just like the Wiimote and Nunchuck.
ASUS seems to be bringing a lot of new toys out to play at Computex, but we're suddenly most intrigued by the Eee Stick, a pair of motion-sensing game controllers that looks like nothing more than a pair of Wii nunchuks. We're hearing that the left nunchuck can also work as a 3D mouse, but it'll be interesting to see if ASUS plans to actually pitch the $70 set to game developers, or if it's just another gimmicky controller that'll inevitably get dumped for the comforts of WASD.
