Gaming website Siliconera has revealed that Nintendo filed a Japanese patent application for an accessory that turns the Wiimote into a touchpad. The device will simply slide over your Wiimote and allowing you to use a stylus to control things in games. The touchpad will also be able to be used as a drawing pad or to add a mouse pointer interface to a game.
The device works with mirrors, and when you touch it an infrared LED turns on. "The amplified beams from the LED bounce off the mirror and are interpreted by the controller as position data," Siliconera explains.
