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.
