â??Whack to the Future!â?? How the Nintendo Wii is Leading the â??Active-Interfaceâ?? Revolution

Posted by

Nintendoâ??s Wii has broken new ground in getting your lazy butt off of your couch and physically into the game. Is this a new gimmick, or the beginning of the â??Get up and move your body!â? — â??Active-Interfaceâ?? revolution?

Nintendo shocked everyone by releasing an ugly stupid controller system that looked more like a poor television remote than a breakthrough in gaming control. The Wii Remote has motion sensors that translate your movements into controls. If you add the â??Nunchuckâ??-attachment, you can have two motion sensitive controllers per person, one for each hand. Unlike every other average gaming controller, this breakthrough insures that people get physical. (Thereâ??s even a wrist strap to stop you from throwing the controller across the room accidentally. Too bad the first straps were too thin and people unexpectedly ended up throwing their controllers through windows, at siblings, into their televisions, etc. Nintendo was quick to replace the straps with better ones, but not before they were sued over Wii wrist straps.) The new Wii controllers are not just a gimmick, but they are fun! People have even started documenting how they are on the Wii exercise program with great results! Thereâ??s even a website: www.wiiweightlossplan.com.
