Nope. The one patent 'mosaic' was something like a wiimote and 'chuck attachment being placed in some kind of shotgun configuration as well as some bizarre picture of a game cube TV and IR sensors.

All and all these attachments are somewhat removing the imagination that the Wii was suppose to put back into gaming.

Nintendo doesn't care about imagination, they just want people to buy 5-cent Chinese made pieces of plastic for $20/each.

Presumably the bike pedal would be used with an exercise bike. Personally I think a racing game where speed was controlled by how fast you pedal would be pretty cool.

That WiiBike thing would be freaking hilarious.
