Well, this was unexpected.
A European patent held by Nintendo (discovered by Siliconera) shows the company isn't content with just having peripherals like the Balance Board, Vitality Sensor, Zapper, Wheel, MotionPlus and the Nunchuck. No, Nintendo wants to peripheralize your badonkadonk as well.
An inflatable horse saddle is the latest innovation patented by the company. The seat would have be able to sense body motion through built-in sensors and present an accurate translation on screen, like a MotionPlus for your butt.
In the picture, a child is seen holding a nunchuck, which the patent describes could be used for "bronco riding, a lasso, a sword, or other weapon."
Keep in mind that just because Nintendo has filed a patent doesn't mean the peripheral will actually be developed or released. Still, Yoshi's Safari Wii confirmed?
I was actually thinking something to do with riding Epona, but yeah, Yoshi's Safari would work too.
Ya know what, I don't like it.
That picture's plain wrong! 0_o
@RaccoonMario: Epona would be a cool idea.
The WTF tag knows its place.
Also, this could make for a peripheral for a VERY raunchy game.
Epona would not be a cool idea.. can you imagine having to get off every time you run around as link, and then get on this thing every time you get on Epona... unless its a game were your always on epona
Has this been confirmed yet? If so, then LOL. Sounds like an failed product.
With this and the vitality sensor on the horizon, I expect great things from Sexy Poker 2.
That's one of the greatest uses of tags I have ever seen.
With this, the vitality sensor, and motion plus, I can see great things coming from that Playboy game
@Bahamut ZERO LOL I think your store will be busy when this comes out. torch emporium!
I was going to post something funny, but I've already been massively outdone by warioswoods in post #9.
@SUPERZELDAMAN: We sell torches, unless people decide to burn them (a likely conclusion), I don't see me making a profit.
@SUPERZELDAMAN: what are they going to set on fire? The store, Nintendo, or the product?
cancle it!! wii already have the BALENCE BOARD!!
Hang on. Didn't we just hear from Nintendo for consumers to be patient with the Vitality Sensor that more software is coming and now they want another periphial. WTF. Hang on I get it. Sit on the Infatable butt thing with your feet on the balance board with two Wii Remotes in both hands and the Vitality Sensor and you have full body motion control. Now we need motion control gloves and necklases and prob. socks too. Yeah definatley socks too.
Well, Someone at Nintendo has lost it.
Perhaps Nintendo knows that Microsoft and Sony are watching them. Therefore they are releasing joke patents to keep them busy. I mean seriously, can you imagine microsoft.
"STOP natal! We need INFLATABLE HORSES!"
This is going to be the focus of Nintendo's E3 2010 press conference.
Exactly! I already pre-ordered my copy.
Didn't the 27th game in the (Rayman) Raving Rabbids series sell on the point of that it was the first Wii game you could play with you butt? Maybe this was just a failed prototype of the balance board.
I love the Wii Saddle. It's SO bad. >:3
9-Yeah, exactly! That was what I was going for with my comment.
with this you can definetly ride a horse...in two ways
@warioswods-LOL! This looks doomed to epic failure!
This must be a joke! it's awful lol.
Nintendo...i double-dare you to announce a horse game at E3 next year....and if you do.....BYE BYE!....im packing my bags and going to the other consoles for good.
Stupid bloody ideas they have.
Well, if it's comfortable, who knows? I'd bet my guess that this is probably for the magical world of bella-sara crowd...
I find something about this deeply disturbing.
Yoshi's Safrai Wii? Yes please!
I will get this if and only if Nintendo also brings back the Power Glove. Games would just be "better" with both.
Oompa-loompas need love too.
Ok nintendo serious needs to think of some real ideas I mean what the $#@! is that all about.
Apparently Nintendo really does want to get rid of all Ninty fans...
Unless there are adult games coming our way, in that case expect many sticky situations and unpleasant video's on youtube.
I'll pretend this doesn't exist.
Looks almost like just a mini-beanbag chair... but really uncomfortable.
Is that a giant baby?
It could be good. You never know!
Oh god,take me now... This is something you can't explain in plain words. Let me putt it this way:
I seriously hope this ain't another era of POWER GLOVE or the round-skate-kind-of-thing (yes,it was pure crap.craptastic,so to speak)... Nintendo just can't resist.
this is probably something that nintendo thought was a good idea of the time. so they patented it in case MS or Sony copies it.
i doubt this will actually become a real product.
Apparantly we're going to do more than just play as Yoshi is Super Mario Galaxy 2...
Why would anyone ever, ever say that? Please, nobody ever say that.
