Wii Fit add on to bring real live medical advice to the comfort of your own console


Now it’s not just the gym that needs to worry about what Mario and his pals are up to in your home. Yes, medical practioners of the world need now fear for their jobs, or more likely the ones in private healthcare better start saving, because Nintendo is planning an add on for the Wii Fit apparently called the “Check-Up”.

NEC, Hitachi and Panasonic have got it in development and what it does is to forward on the results from your Wii Fit activities to a medical professional of some description that will then be able to tell you that you’re in good shape – either that or call an ambulance when your coughing and spluttering and clutching your upper arm despite the on-screen encouragement.

They’re hoping it comes out in April in Japan and perhaps the world as soon as those in the East have finished laughing at our small technology.
