Another is the wireless microphone, which you can use to sing with games such as Rock Band or Guitar Hero: World Tour. Microsoft, the Xbox 360 developer, created a uniform way of connecting official wireless devices to the console, so hooking up your wireless microphone is a nearly identical to connecting your wireless controller.
