Nyko Patents its Particular Brand of Awesomeness

Tue, Apr 3, 2012

Frisky Misc, Industry

It’s been a good year for TriplePoint client Nyko: According to the NPD Group, Nyko’s Zoom for Kinect accessory was the bestselling Kinect add-on for 2011, and Nyko itself was the #1 console accessory manufacturer for the year. All of this is no doubt due to Nyko’s patented style and general fantastic-ness. That’s not just a turn of phrase, either — Nyko has actually patented their awesomeness. According to a press release this morning, Nyko was just awarded a patent on the Zoom, giving them…

sole authority to produce “a lens accessory for a video game sensor device and a method of adjusting a sensing distance of a video game sensor device.”

Man, and I was going to tape a magnifying glass to my Wiimote. Congratulations to Nyko on successfully navigating the labyrinth of our American bureaucracy!
