    I'll let the pictures speak for themselves. A branch of Nintendo in Europe went on a limb and patented a lot of uses for the Nintendo Wiimote. The most outstanding, be that a good or bad thing, are posted below.

    Just covering the bases. You never know who might rip an idea off.

    @all,

    These nintendo patents are not about actual "products". It is nothing more than the PR agency finding a new way to get free advertising and get to forums that no other form of advertising could reach. Its the Heineken method.
