To be quite honest, I’m surprised that it’s taken so long for someone to dig up the old patents for the Nintendo Wii Remote. Not that I’m the type to have gone digging for it, but the Wii has been out since ’06. Well, kudos to Siliconera for doing all the hard work on this one. Other patent images were found for the Classic Controller and Nunchuck, but the Wiimote seemed to have gone through most of the change. Hit the jump for a detailed image of the evolution of the Wii Remote.
The other patent images, which aren’t terribly exciting, can be found at Siliconera.
