Nintendo is demented: Patented diagrams show some awful Wii gimmick ideas

CVG has uncovered some absolutely stunning ideas from Nintendo -- stunning due to just how unbelievably stupid they are. If you thought Nintendo couldn't get lower than The Virtual Boy or R.O.B, just look at what the company passed by The European Patent Office. Yes, that IS a bicycle, and yes, that IS a Wiimote slot in the pedal.

Go check out the full selection of Nintendo's peripheral ideas, because there are some real corkers. Another favorite is the Wiimote slotting into a teddy bear's stomach ... WHY!? You can also see an early Wii Zapper idea, as well as a Wiimote recharge station, perhaps the only good idea out of them. I mean seriously -- in a teddy bear's stomach!

Considering some of the half-baked crap to come out of Nintendo's peripheral catalog over the years, these shouldn't even be surprising, but hopefully, considering this document of ideas was patented in March 2006, we won't see too many of them brought to life. But then, the company that releases a big white pressure pad for a fitness game is capable of anything.

Be afraid. Be very afraid.
