    Nintendo originaly wanted to go crazy with peripherals.

    A document published by the European Patent Office has revealed a number of Nintendo's 'interesting' ideas for Wii peripherals, including a baseball bat, a skateboard and a teddy bear.

    Take a look at the images of the patents for yourself.

    Nintendo filed the patent way back in May of 2006, so we imagine most of the concepts have since been discarded.

    However, as exemplified by Shigeru Miyamoto's 20-year obsession with bringing the Mii's to life, the company sometimes just won't let their idea's die.

    Interestingly, hidden within the barmy pictures is a Wii Remote charger unit. Hopefully this won't be one thrown out with the rest.
    NOTE: pictures of these peripherals are at the bottom of the linked page.

    I'd really like to see a Kart addon, a life sized sit in Mario Kart would fly off the shelves. Imagine you and 3 buddies all sat in one, swiping at each other with the wiimote to throw shells

    They probably discarded all the patents because they were dumb ideas. You put the Wiimote into a bear and then what? Watch the bear sleep?

    Hhmmmmmmmmm...
    Interesting to say the least.
    It's clear Nintendo were clearly brainstorming, and obviously leaving no rock un turned.
    This shows they were really trying hard, and it payed off too, those guy's should be proud of themselves.

    Yeah I saw those pictures yesterday, some of them are quite farfetched.
    Maybe we can expect one of these after Wii Fit?

    Well, the WiiSports bat was a good one if anything (the best there). Stuff like the chair and bear were just stupid.

    Test your... CHAIR STRENGTH! Go!

    most of them seem improbable, but the skateboard doesn't make sense at all. So you're playing Tony Hawk, you want to do a kick flip in the game, so you actually... have to do a kickflip... in your house...? isn't that the part of the beauty of gaming, the fact that i'm an untalented person but i can do cool stuff in the game? If that happened all i'd be able to do in the game is friggin tic-tac around the levels... and fall.


    i would pay them $50 just to tell me what the hell they were thinking about doing with the chair and the teddy bear. The bear could be be some kind of hug-o-meter? Maybe helpful for girls who just got dumped? I guess they could have a simulation game where you're really really old and your just hanging out in a rocking chair on your porch chain smoking and doing a crossword... Level 2- in the kitchen playing solitare(online mode would be Bridge)... Level 3- in the backseat of your kids car yelling at them about how they should be driving. and LEVEL 4- in the living room, watching soaps, and KNITTING!!!!... level 5-... death?
