Did you know the Wii U GamePad uses the Earth’s magnetic field for positioning?

These facts and more in this Vsauce3 video

Vsauce3 has been pumping out these cool stop-motion videos for some time now, and they’re actually quite interesting to watch. This one’s about the Wii U, the first Nintendo console to support HD. But I’m sure you already knew that.

Stick around for four additional facts and some disassembly of a Wii U in this video. Somehow it’s always a beautiful thing to watch a console being stripped down.
