Today we received a product announcement from Innex Inc., revealing Komodo's newest addition to its oh-man-this-is-a-bad-idea line of peripherals. Introducing the Rapidshot, what Innex is declaring will be "The Most Controversial Accessory on the E3 Floor."

Based on the MP5 submachine gun, the Rapidshot comes with built-in controls that replace your Wii remote, Nunchuck, and Wii MotionPlus, as well as built-in speaker and rumble systems, and a detachable magazine for batteries. Consumer backlash is not included.

The ad for the Rapidshot also includes the tagline: "You grew up. Isn't it time your accessories did?" Because nothing is more grown up than aiming a replica gun at the television in your living room while playing the Wii...

Speaking of grown ups, do any parents out there want to teach Innex the difference between good attention and bad attention?
