Nintendo Patented an "Illumination Device" for Gaming Use

It doesn't seem like a device that would forever change the way we see games, but the effects of light and colour should not be underestimated.

Where after READING this, would you even remotely think light saber? The article specifically says 'projection' like on something, walls or 'curtains'.....

This is the weapon of a Jedi Knight. Not as clumsy or as random as a blaster. An elegant weapon... for a more civilized age.

Mood colors? Could make playing zombi U in the dark a whole lot more exciting....

That's actually a pretty cool idea.

Wow, if u think this is cool you should check out Microsoft illumiroom. I think BOTH are dumb....clearly this plan Nintendo HAD 4 years ago on Wii is not happening any time soon.

That is the simpler yet more effective & affordable option of illuminating device
MS always go to blow things out of proportion while Nintendo goes for simplicity
