Have Wii Been Warned Adequately?
Nintendo's new Wii video game controller, which responds to users' body movements, has apparently given rise to a level of excitement and risk not entirely anticipated by the company. The controller is designed to allow users to emulate the motions of games they are playing, such as a golfer's swing. Some people are apparently getting more excited when using the controller than Nintendo anticipated. The result is broken wrist safety straps and unteathered game controllers flying around the house, into lamps, through windows, and otherwise wreaking minor havoc. See Tom Zeller, Jr.'s story in the New York Times.
