Adam Wickam's resume includes a stint as a plumber and business school at University of Northern Colorado in Greeley, and he somehow managed to meld the two with his love of video games in his entrepreneurial career. Four years ago, Wickam, now 30, made a bendable rifle to play Nintendo Wii shooting games out of plumbing scraps, and immediately saw the advantages over the motion-controlled pointers that come with the Wii and the PlayStation Move.

"It's very difficult to operate those pointers," he says "It's almost like controlling the onscreen player's eyes with a wand."

Compatible with the PlayStation Move, the FlexFire is more accurate and "re-centers automatically," says Wickam, whose favorite PlayStation titles are "Resistance" and "GoldenEye 007." "It makes playing these games a lot easier." $29.99 retail.
