Nintendo WaveBird Wireless Controller
The Nintendo WaveBird Wireless Controller is a radio frequency (RF) based wireless controller manufactured for the Nintendo GameCube video game console. It was the first first-party wireless controller available. Its name is a reference to Dolphin, the GameCube's codename during development. The WaveBird was available for purchase separately as well as in bundles with either Metroid Prime or Mario Party 4, which were exclusive to Kmart in the US.
To use the controller you plug a RF receiver into one of the four controller ports and set the controller to one of four channels. Nintendo claimed that you could operate your GameCube from as far as 34 feet (10 meters) away.
