The Nintendo Wii was revolutionary. Nintendo didn't go after graphics or processing power, just good old fun. And they came up with a brilliant idea, the Wiimote. It's a motion sensing controller, so to play games on it, you move your hands around, and point, wielding the game's controller like a sword or swinging it like a tennis racket.
Looks like fun !!
However, it may yet go down as one of those 'seemed like a good idea at the time' things. It's been less than 2 weeks since the Wii was unleashed on the public, and already two problems have occurred.
1. Wii Elbow: The Wall Street Journal reports that several couch potatoes and otherwise inactive gamers have been forced to do a lot more exercise than they were used to. Aching bodies, sore arms all round. But that's not the worst one.
2. The Flying Wiimote: The Wiimote is attached to your hand with a strap. But guess what? It breaks, sending the controller flying in the air.
