Nintendo Prototype Motion-Sensing One-Handed Controller Unearthed

Gizmodo have discovered a 2001 controller prototype called GyroPod for Nintendo. It showed a detachable one-handed motion sensing controller from Gyration.

If you are a serious Nintendo fan, you know that Gyration is a company that holds most of the best motion-sensing patents. Nintendo licensed a number of those patents from Gyration in 2001, and brought the company on board that year to develop a one-handed controller. (Nintendo even became an investor in Gyration, which is now owned by Thomson.)
