thought I'd pass this on.lits interesting, and game related.
3. VI Fit Project Brings Accessible Bowling, Tennis Games Similar to
The Nintendo Wii has allowed for the creation of a new breed of video
games which require players to use physical motion to compete. But as
anyone who has tried Wii Sports knows, sighted assistance is generally
required to play these games with much accuracy. The Vi Fit project
seeks to change this. Using the Wii Remote and a computer with Bluetooth
support, blind participants can play two free games Vi Bowling and Vi
Tennis, accessible versions based on their Wii Sports counterparts.
According to the VI Fit website, "Lack of physical activity is a serious
health concern for individuals who are visually impaired as they have
fewer opportunities and incentives to engage in physical activities that
provide the amounts and kinds of stimulation sufficient to maintain
adequate fitness and to support a healthy standard of living." The
project, the brainchild of students at the University of Nevada at Reno,
plans on producing more games in the coming months. The titles are free
and can be downloaded now.
so if we can use wii controllers with our computers that sounds very
cool! maybe using nintendo wi controllers can be added to the bgt toolkit.
