    This is very strange. But I'm kind of excited for it, actually. Maybe a fitness or sports soon, codenamed Mii Fit Sports Resort

    This is what happens when companies have an excess of something and think of a way to sell it to clueless idiots, lol

    they managed to sell like 50 million Wii balance board units ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wii_Balance_Board )
    somebody at nintendo probably thought they should keep doing fitness accessories...

    from a gamer standpoint what would this be used for? as a bow in zelda maybe?
    I dont see a lot of other uses...

    The only thing that looks interesting to me is the strap that they stuck on their leg with the Joy-Con attached, but not because of the intended purpose. Hell, not even for the Switch. I'm thinking of getting the Natural Locomotion program from Steam for a VR headset, so I can just walk in place to move around in games like Fallout. One of the options to get it to read your footsteps is a Joy-Con set strapped to your legs, so this seems like a perfect setup so I'm not doing something like shoving them into socks.

    Honestly, I don't even own a Switch.

    Looks like something you could make yourself with a little duct tape and a small kid's bike tire.

    I'll pass on this like I did when they tried to sell us peripherals made of cardboard.
