Believe it or not, the Wii Vitality Sensor is not the strangest peripheral Nintendo has in development. They've recently patented a horseback riding peripheral.

The peripheral, revealed by Siliconera, is a seat cushion with a slot for a Wiimote. You hold the Nunchuk in front of you and use it as "reins," directing a horse on-screen. The cushion may be inflatable in order to make it easier to transport or store.

This technology doesn't have to be limited to horseback riding, though. Nintendo mentions in their patent that the saddle peripheral could also be used to simulate the riding of dolphins ("doin' flips and shit..."), hang gliders, and other vehicles/animals.

Hang gliders, huh? Will this peripheral take us one step closer to a much-needed Pilotwings remake?
