Wii Remote Ports - What can they be used for? Answered

So since the Switch is the main Nintendo console and the Wii sold like wildfire, I recently had a thought for a project involving the plug and sockets for Wii Remotes and the things you can plug into them. Seeing as how Nintendo is all about unique ports for handheld and home consoles, why not remove the ports from a Wii Remote and Nunchuck for use in say (something easy to try) a storage device, like a specialized USB or something? Based on the Wii Remote i took apart, the port is only 6 pins, and you can get both parts of the port with a Wii Motion Plus. I imagine the price for either is lowered quite a bit at used game & movie stores, so what do you guys think could be made with the ports?
