TechnologyIn a continuing collaboration with Scott over at Straight to the Bar, we will be writing about the technology of fitness equipment throughout the month of July.

Nintendo WiiThis week, Scott talks about the Nintendo Wii and what its role is as an extra tool in the fitness arsenal.

Nintendo has had Wii Sports since the console was released, but they are now creating a new program called “Wii Fit” which includes using a balance board as a controller. Scott discusses some of the advantages of using the balance board, including a video that was recently shown at E3. He also discusses an experiment that one man used to lose weight by playing video games for 30 minutes per day.
