Nintendo Wii Fit

The Nintendo Wii is many things: a motion-sensing video-game console, a retail success story, possibly even a cultural touchstone. What it isn’t, despite its players’ controller-waving antics and media hype about gamers finally getting off the couch, is an exercise machine. Until now. The Wii Fit, a soon-to-be-released suite of games that uses a $70 weight- and balance-sensing Balance Board, does everything from analyzing posture to revealing how bad you actually are at yoga. It turns fitness into a game, instead of a chore.

Just to make it clear, I don’t think MSN Men Lifestyles, saying that the Wii fit board is $70, is confirmation of the price of the board.
