Fitscale Droid app turns Wii Fit board into a scale

Spotted on GigaOm (Free Android app turns Nintendo Wii Fit board into a smart scale), FitScales "uses the available APIs to send your weight data to either your FitBit (see disclosure) or RunKeeper account, just like a traditional web-connected scale would do."

Now I know this is not an exergame, but it does use a sensor that is an exergame. Who's to say that now that they're paired that someone can write an app that allows you to play games while using the board on a mobile device or OUYA gaming console. Might we finally see a greater crescendo of movement based games?
