Another fun little post for tonight.
Most of you probably know that one of the great new features of the Nintendo Wii is the motion-sensitive controller that lets you really swing the controller to control the game. You can swing a golf club or tennis racket, punch in boxing, bowl, and swing a sword in Zelda. Pretty cool, although I personally have commented that this is likely to be a short-lived gimmick.
This website has a lot of the Wii commercials loaded, in case you want to see it in action.
Well, no good deed goes unpunished, and no innovation happens without unintended consequences.
For the Nintendo Wii, the unintended consequence seems to be… Wii Damage!
There is a whole website now dedicated to damage that people have done swinging that new controller around playing games! Cracked projection TVs, glasses, windows, some cuts & bruises. There is even a photo of a Wii remote that cracked the case of a TV and got stuck!
