An Inflatable Car to Play Mario Kart Wii In

Ok.  I’ve never owned a racing game, never spent much time playing Mario Kart, and am simply not a car person in general.

But this inflatable peripheral for your Wiimote is totally awesome.

Crafted by CTA, makers of a large number of electronics accessories, the car is basically an inflatable seat, with a sturdy steering wheel with room for a Wiimote to slot into it.  The car inflates in minutes, can support up to 300 pounds, and is going for $40 on Amazon.com.  Yup.  40 bucks to get the next best thing since the car bed.

Warning: We understand that the urge to play Mario Kart from a pool will be strong.  I imagine that the urge to bank around turns will also be strong.  Do not combine the two.
