Spong’s found yet another US Nintendo patent, this time for a Wiimote that takes your blood pressure.

That’s it, really. The device would b designed to read “pulse and body temperature of a user playing a video game on the video game console, and a rotation counter for counting the number of rotations of the main body.”

“Patent” does not mean “reality,” remember. More through the link.
