Maybe I didn't watch enough Reading Rainbow as a kid, but whenever I pick up Nintendo's Mario Kart racing wheel, I only see a circular hunk of plastic with a big hole in the middle. It looks like Logitech has a new wireless racing wheel for players cursed with limited imaginative capabilities such as myself.

The Logitech Speed Force Wireless wheel sits in your lap and behaves as a wheel should by providing gravitational and rotational resistance. Logitech partnered up with EA to support force-feedback in the publisher's upcoming Need for Speed Undercover racing game for the Wii. The wheel doesn't come with a set of foot pedals or a shift stick, but it does have a set of paddle shifters.

The wheel comes with a 2.4GHz wireless USB transmitter that plugs into the Wii. The console interface may be wireless, but you will still need to plug the wheel into an AC electrical outlet for power.

Expect to see the Logitech Speed Force Wireless in stores for $100 this November, just in time for Need for Speed Undercover.
