Is that a Wiimote in your pocket vibrating?

A company called “Immersion” holds a patent that allows them to claim royalties for things that vibrate or provide force-feedback. They’re the reason that Sony’s Playstation 3 controllers had no rumble features at first — it took losing an $82 million lawsuit before Sony capitulated.

But you know what else vibrates? Things you put inside yourself for sexual pleasure. (Including my personal all-natural pleasure generator: a jar of bees. Just be sure to keep the lid on tight or it won’t just be a colony that’s collapsing.)

Immersion didn’t want to enforce its patents on teledildonic gaming devices — the name is also the cleaning instructions! — so they licensed the rights to the blandly named “Internet Services, LLC”, who is in turn suing some other people and then the lawyer left so they sued him and oh I appear to be falling asleep.

It’s the bastard son of a Wiimote and a common or garden-variety DoCoMo cellphone, stuck together by a clever guy who’s good at this kind of stuff.

Anywii, take part in our exclusive poll below the gallery.

Nintendo Wii light saber
