Play Wii U Games Off An SD Card

YT user Shokio discovered that if you pop your SD card into one of these readers and then insert it into the Wii U USB port, the system will treat it as a standard USB thumb drive, and allow you to move and play software from it. (Wii U)

Of course it works if you use a USB adapter, that's the whole point of those adapters, it makes it look like "normal" storage. The same drawbacks that apply to USB flash drives (which Nintendo recommend against) apply to these - they're prone to corruption during writing, so they're best avoided as Wii U storage.

What next, an article about the "revelation" that the Wii U also works with 3.5" drive caddies? O_o
