A Wii is a horse, of course, of course
If you can box, bowl, play tennis, or even cheerlead vicariously with your Wii, why not go horseback riding! Yes, the always-playful folks at Nintendo have filed a patent for an inflatable riding device that many health-club veterans will instantly recognize as a repurposed BOSU with a Wii remote and nunchuck attached.
Nintendo also filed a patent for a Wii bike attachment, but this “Horsu” has so much more gaming potential: pretend you’re riding a camel, or llama, or unicorn, or Yoshi, or combine it with Guitar Hero and rock out in more ways than one. (Thanks to Sarah, the GH-on-BOSU queen!)
Obligatory Jillian Michaels mention: Jillian Michaels needs to include this peripheral in her next Wii workout game. It won’t make it any worse.
