Sorry for my bad english.

My company has a ideal to combine wii remote and some part to make a independent smartboard( It can run without computer). But now the problem is wii remote, we only need wii remote board, not plastic case, but:
1. If we buy wii remote from nintendo, and remove plastic case, use wii remote board to combine with our part and make a new product with our brand. Is it illegal?
2. Anyone know how to ask nintendo to make OEM wii remote board? Is it possible?

Again, sorry for my bad english. Can anyone check my grammar? and pls fix it :)

Hi,

You will need to contact Nintendo directly as this may lead to huge legal repercussions.

On as side note, there are indeed many third-party manufacturers who produce Wiimote-like devices. However, the legality of such devices remains a question mark. :)

the other thing you can do is find out when the patant is due and then the tech becomes avalible for copy unless they change something on the patint and re issues the date of protection.


good luck in your search. also check out china they dont care about patants.  so much.
