Active Life: Athletic World for the Wii

The number of exergames being unveiled is incredible, sometimes overwhelming. In light of my earlier post on The Winds of Orbis at Carnagie Mellon, Namco Bandai Games is releasing a touch sensitive mat to go along with the Wii-mote. From the images, one game looks to be a watercraft game and the other one looks like a roller coaster ride. It's only a matter of time before all the 3rd party Wii games really start pumping out as they authorize game developers and secondary controllers. I think combining devices is the wave of the future, especially combining other touch sensitve controllers, webcams (EyeToy-ish), social networking, and perhaps some ubiquitous computing. More videos of Active Life from GameTrailers. The future's so bright....
