Although the Nintendo Wii Zapper accessory
has been for sale for quite some time now, sometimes spending the estimated $20 or so for a piece of molded plastic is just not doable to many of us. Maybe it's out of principle or funds being used for higher priorities, but if you haven't bought a zapper, here's a solution for you.
This quite inventive DIY'er made a Wii "holster" out of standard plastic acrylate sheets
using a design he made in Adobe Illustrator. Plastic acrylate is the material you often seen used for those see-through boxes on the shelves of many retailers (not blister packs, though).
If you have a Wii game that requires the Wiimote to be held in a specific way and you haven't bought a Zapper to hold it, this is probably your solution. This won't hold the nunchuk that you may need as well (as in, The Legend of Zelda
), but it does allow for the nunchuk to be connected. If you want the template to cut out your own Zapper apparatus, see this
(PDF download). You'll need some small elastic bands and, of course, a sheet or two of plastic acrylate.
