My first post on MH, so bear with me if this has been posted before. I haven't seen anything like it after a quick search, so hopefully I don't accidentally copy something another user has written.
The fact that Poseidon, one of the three ancient weapons, is in fact a living being, has some interesting implications as I see it. First and foremost of course that at least one of them still exists today, but also that the other weapons might be living beings themselves. Monsters, strong individuals, whatever. But what if...
Now, as we all know, Poseidon was the god of the oceans. Hades was the god of the Underworld and the lord of death. Now, why isn't the third weapon named Zeus? Zeus, Poseidon and Hades were the powerful trinity of the Greek pantheon, so this would be logical. Uranus on the other hand was one of the first gods and father of the three, so he doesn't fit into this quiet well. Whatever Hades is or might be has some interesting implications of course, but here is what I think.
I think Uranus might be the Yami-Yami no mi.
Whenever Uranus came to Gaia, it became dark, so there is a small connection there. However, I base my claim more on the.. unique properties the Yami-Yami no mi has. It barely fits the Logia category and has such a huge set of powers, that it just seems to be out of balance to me. Even the Gura-Gura no mi or the Kage-Kage no mi, which are extremely powerful in their own rights, don't have quiet the spectrum that the Yami-Yami no mi provides. Especially the fact that the user can negate other DF abilities with it makes me wonder. And there is the fact, that it seems to enable its user to steal other users powers, though I want to put that aside because there are just too many unknown factors there.
As things are, I could very well imagine the Yami-Yami to be artificially created, maybe during the Void Century, to put up something against powerful Devil Fruit users throughout the world. The thought of ALL Devil Fruits being a product of that age isn't that far from it, though I personally don't think so. Most of them were "natural" I guess and only the Yami-Yami (and maybe a few others) were created artificially during t he Void Century, the Yami-Yami of course to counter other DF-users and steal their abilities for whoever created it.
Sorry, I just could not resist XD
On a more serious note, I do not believe that the Yami Yami no Mi is Uranus. In my opinion, the last remaining ancient weapon might even be hidden on the Moon, waiting for someone to discover it and bring it back (Enel himself, maybe? Oda said he would have made a return, so him owning one of the most powerful devil fruits PLUS on of the ancient weapons would actually turn him into a serious enemy not only for the New World, but for the whole world of One Piece). Just an idea, though.

For what we know it could be anything. Pluton is a giant battleship, Poseidon is a mermaid with the power to control Sea Kings. What they have in common is that both are related to the sea.
Being a Devil Fruit would match the sea theme, but I would expect something more unique. Perhaps what creates Devil Fruits.
Poseidon goes underwater, Pluton goes on surface and can attact ground. Maybe Uranus is made to go and attack the skies.
a weapon that is round and dark that shoots deadly gas--which is why punk hazard was introduced, in order to give us the idea of chemical weapons being used.
No one ever wondered if the Maxim could be it? That thing had an unreasonable destructive power.
To be honest, I can't think on what Uranus could be, I wouldn't put it past Oda having dropped a few clues along the way already....
uranus could be a fruit from the devil tree that gets bore once in every 100s of years and possesses all the powers in all fruits.

I also think it's a sky weapon.
It might be some living thing. If we assume that it should be connected to sky, then it might be some sort of a dragon or a bird that is ridiculously huge and would be able to use some AoE attacks.
It might also be some sort of artificial weapon that is located on the Moon.
It might even be some sort of Titan who is born once in a century among Giants of Elbaf.
There are tons of possibilities and I hope Oda will eventually present it to us in the New World.
P.S. I hope it's not on Raftel among other things.
It's One Piece. It brings all the seas together and connects them into "one piece".
Which is Sanji's dream of All Blue.
Hm.. Well, I guess I have a good idea about what Uranus might be. Uranus I guess would most likely be a space weapon, precisely a satellite weapon - a satellite weapon, like the "Sun Gun" that can be used to reflect sunlight onto a concentrated point on the earth and burn an entire island. Damn, that would be terrifying.
It could be kinda like this.
This is an image of a random satellite weapon, not particularly the Sun Gun.
Have funn guys xD
