While the Wii brought body movements to the world of digital gaming, the Wii Fit adds yet another dimension. It turns its games into exercise. The original Wii Fit has been unbelievably popular. Now Nintendo has introduced a new Wii Fit called the Wii Fit Plus. We looked at this new gaming-exercise device to see if it could deliver a true “exercise is fun experience.”
As shown in Figure 1, the Wii comes in a fairly plain box that is actually bigger and heavier than expected.
Inside the box you will find the Wii Fit itself, shown in Figure 2. Also included is the software disk, 4 AA batteries and four extension legs which can be added to the bottom of the Wii if it will be used on plush carpeting.
The heft of the box comes from the Wii Fit balance board itself which is roughly 8.8 lbs (4 kilograms) and measures 20.5 x 13.2 x 3.1 inches (52 x 33.5 x 33 cm)
