We all know the Wii is for kids, but that doesn't mean it doesn't have its fair share of grownup fans. This latest patent, however, is just asking for its fair share of ridicule.
The way it's supposed to work is you hold the nunchuck like a horse's reins as the controller rests on the bouncer. Each bounce will then be picked up and translated as a form of movement and thrown back to the console. Pretty simple, but you can imagine what players will look like while they're using this device.
To be fair, the contraption already has an applicable use, as there are games that require some sort of horseback-riding action like Zelda and, er, Zelda. That's more than we can say about the Wii Vitality Sensor. The patent, however, is said to contain more fantastic examples like "whales, dragons, griffons, unicorns, and giant eagles."
In any case, we hope that no aspiring (read: sick) programmers pull off an Atari Porn with this device.
