What would be the world of gaming like, if you are enjoying and burning calories together? Seems untrue? What if I tell you Japan’s Nintendo, is already working on something like this and it will soon hit the consumer markets?
Wii Fit has been a great but not hugely popular attempt at Nintendo the Japanese game maker to combine both health and entertainment. But somehow with an exercising controller and home-made Wii Fit, Nintendo is trying to do it the Apple way. Long gone are the days of balance boards, it’s the year of wearables and we can expect innovation and greatness from Nintendo.
Gamers often spend a lot of time in front of the PC or console, and this gives them a severe back ache. Something like Nintendo controller for exercising can really change the game and make gamers healthier. This will be a gift from every gamers’ girlfriend who wants you to move a little. Nintendo’s controller is really something especially when it is trying to patent its new controller and technology since 2014. Nintendo patents controller that focussing on giving you freedom to play games and exercise. So, whenever there is game-time, it is fitness time too.
Yes, according to MyNintendoNews, “A patent filed by Nintendo for a “Training Implement, Training System, and Input Device” has surfaced on the internet, which was originally filed for in October, 2014. It had an international filing back on September 18, 2015, and publication yesterday via the World Intellectual Property Organization.”
Nintendo Patents a brand new controller to revolutionise exercising through gaming. Sounds untrue? Take a look at yourself and read this Japanese to English translated International Patent filing information:
“A training implement (10) comprises a hollow body (12) formed from an aluminum alloy. The body is configured from two grips (12a) provided facing each other across a space, and a connecting section (12b) connecting the two grips. A load sensor (16) is disposed in the connecting section inside the body. The load sensor is a load cell, the strain gauge is bonded on the inside of the body, and the portion of the body to which the strain gauge is bonded functions as a strain element. Consequently, when a user applies force so as to bring the two grips towards each other or applies force so as to separate the two grips, the load thereof is detected by the load sensor.”
