A schematic for what appears to be a charging dock for the Wii U’s controller has shown up online, courtesy of Nintendo Life. Found by the site over on NeoGAF, the drawing was uneartherd via a patent application from Nintendo showing a cradle similar to the one used by 3DS. Another patent schematic posted over on AGB shows what appears to be a gun-shell design for the controller. Have a look through the links.

    the thing that connects to the controller at the top must be HDMI cable to be able to display the screen in HD.

    Nintendo should have used the Sony/Samsung’s OLED display used on Vita instead
