Nintendo Explains Why The Vitality Sensor Has Been Shelved
Posted on Monday, July 8 @ 09:59:33 Eastern by Alex_Osborn
Back in 2009, Nintendo announced the Wii Vitality Sensor, a device that clips onto the finger, allowing the system to keep track of a player's pulse. Since its E3 debut several years ago, we've heard next to nothing about the piece of hardware.
Nintendo's Satoru Iwata has finally broken the silence surrounding the device, saying that is has been put on hold because of its inconsistency. In a Q&A with stockholders Iwata explained:
At this point, I'd say it's safe to say we'll never see this thing come to market. Perhaps the concepts behind it will serve as inspiration for some other wacky device down the line, but I'm willing to bet that the Vitality Sensor as we've come to know it is essentially no more.
