Nintendo chief Satoru Iwata has outlined a potential release date for the Wii Vitality Sensor, and revealed a little more about what it can do. Read on for the pulse-quickening details!
In a Nintendo investor Q&A, Iwata said that the finger-trapping sensor would ideally be launched “not too late in the year next year” (think in plenty of time for Christmas 2010).
He also said that while the Wii Vitality Sensor measured just the human pulse, this information could be used in several different application, highlighting the way it could check the condition of automatic nerve and help the user unwind and relax.
He also mentioned the sensor being able to detect how scared a player was, which could come in handy with horror games (a plan we’ve heard about before).
All fairly vague and wishy-washy in our opinion, but Nintendo has already captured the public’s imagination (not to mention money) with Wii Fit, so it could be onto a similar money-spinner with the Wii Vitality Sensor.
