leave a comment »

A key product announcement for Nintendo at their conference was for the previously undisclosed Wii Vitality Sensor. Announced by Nintendo President Satoru Iwata, the sensor functions by players inserting their index finger into the small plastic clamp that plugs into the underside of the Wii Remote.

The actual sensor works by detecting the pulse of the player, using the information to chart how nervous, relaxed or focus that they are. According to the Nintendo Head Honcho, it was his hope that the sensor be utilised to ‘bring a greater sense of relaxation to people in our stressful society’.

No titles or tech demonstrations were shown of the accessory which is due out sometime in 2010.
