Update on Wii’s Pulse Oximetry Monitor

Filed under: in the news…

We were pretty excited when Nintendo announced at the E3 Expo in June that they would be releasing a pulse oximetry attachment for the Wii. Now, a few more details are emerging.

Nintendo president Satoru Iwata mentioned in a Q & A that Nintendo “would like to deliver the actual product not too late in the year next year.” The software is said to consist of a relaxation or meditation theme, but Iwata did mention the possibility of “measuring how horrified a player is in a horror title.” We cannot wait to start giving patients stress tests by playing Resident Evil.
