Though not as psychedelically colorful
as PEGA's Wii stand and remote charger, Brando's
Crystal Cooler isn't without its own glitz. The USB
-powered base has a built-in "high-velocity" fan to keep your console's temperature low and an LED glow that'll color your living room walls an electric blue. If you squint and straddle one of your couch's arms like a bike, it'll almost feel like you're riding through Tron
on a lightcycle.
We're still not convinced that the Wii needs a cooling fan
, but some gamers will look for any excuse to light up their hardware
. Priced at nineteen dollars though, the product doesn't even automatically turn on after detecting high temperatures. Instead, users have to manually hit an unmarked switch behind the stand. That's some ol' malarkey right there. Speed through the post break for more glamour shots of the Crystal Cooler.
