It's a wiimote swaddled in hemp – what?

What else is there to say? It’s a wiimote that’s been extensively wrapped in hemp string, or yarn, or whatever it’s called. Now personally, I respect hemp but I don’t like to wear or eat it — they had hemp chips in Trader Joe’s yesterday and I went with flaxseed. Its creator calls it the hempmote, which makes it sound like a little tiny mote of hemp. If he’d had my portmanteau skills, he would have called it the Weedmote, a far less accurate but far more marketable name.

The Weedmote works perfectly well, he says, but is “quite fragile and prone to degeneration,” which isn’t really what you want a hands-on device to be. I like the idea, though — let’s see some more wiimote cozies!
