GN Version 5.0

- filed in Japan on October 16, 2014
- patent titled "Training Implement, Training System, and Input Device"
- saw an international filing on September 18, 2015
- patent was published yesterday
- some form of exercise controller/system incorporating sensors for load, acceleration, gyro and temperature

Looks like another idea that Nintendo had for something Wii Fit related. Perhaps this was for Wii Fit U, since the controller is shaped like a U! Maybe the idea was put on the backburner once Nintendo saw Wii U wasn't selling all that well.
