Wii Vitality Sensor Revealed

Nintendo today announced a new prototype device called the "Wii Vitality Sensor" which will measure a player's pulse.

"Maybe everyone under pressure in our stressful society could use this to relax with a videogame," said Nintendo president Satoru Iwata, who did not detail any software which made use of sensor.

      At least each person can learn how high their pulse is before they throw a controller or violently assault something nearby

      I don't really see a use for this unless you live in a nursing home

        Nah, it really makes sense. Just add it to the finger during Wii Fit for accurate cardio readings.

          Besides, it and a Geiger counter are probably the only things that don't come on a cell phone these days.

            3 Dog will not be pleased. He always told me to keep an eye on my Geiger counter.
