Nintendo Registers Odd New Device: A Pedometer?

As is the norm with Nintendo of late, they’ve registered a strange new device, as seen above. To the optimistic, this is what a Nintendo Wii storage solution looks like.

But according to the chatter (the other link isn’t working for me) on NeoGAF, where it was discovered, it’s apparently a pedometer of some kind, it would likely work with Wii Fit in some capacity… or it’s Nintendo’s next step after Friend Codes to help keep children safe from 4chan and the like.

More likely, it would keep track of the number of steps you take for Wii Fit, so that Nintendo will know every breath you take, every move you make, and with every step you take… they’ll be watching you.
