    Patents reveal new Wii accessories!

    "Third-party accessory manufacturers aren't the only ones coming up
    with ridiculous things to attach your Wii remote onto! A recent patent
    application posted at the European Patent Office's site reveals some
    of the crazy peripherals Nintendo dreamed up to explain the
    controller's potential, like the goggles shown above. ThinkGeek's Wii
    Helm seems like a respectable, thought-out product, compared to this
    silly idea. Wouldn't that unbalanced weight give you a sore neck after
    a minute of wearing this headpiece?

    And there are much zanier diagrams in the application document -- Wii
    remotes in racing helmets, bike pedals, skateboard wheels, and teddy
    bears! How would this stuff even work? There are also drafts for a
    docking station and the old shotgun-design Zapper (the GameCube and
    wireless receiver demonstrating the Zapper shows the artwork's age).
    You can check them all out in our gallery below!"
