The wii u uses a random 5Ghz channel to mirror display between its controller and the console.  From some spectrum captures I ran it uses 80-100% utilization of the random channel it chooses.  Something to watch out for especially in residence halls.  Looks like a continuous transmitter in the spectrum analyzer.   Have seen it on channel 36, 161, and 165.
