Nintendo files patent for inflatable cushion for Wii Remote

Posted on Wednesday, August 12 2009 @ 11:32:56 CEST by

Joystiq reports Nintendo filed a patent in Europe for "an inflatable air cushion or other type of seat" with a pocket for the Wii Remote. According to the patent description notes, this odd gaming chair could be used to simulate horse riding or even vehicles.
A Nunchuk (or another Wii Remote) is used as the reins of the beast, and the Wii Remote in the pocket detects the player's movement on the seat, which can be used either for balance or, in one example, to indicate the gait of the horse: "gentle forward/backward motion = walking, fast forward/backward rocking motion = gallop."
