Side effects of Wii Fit

We are beginning to see some unintended consequences of the Wii Fit craze. First there is the craze of videoing nubile young ladies using it and then posting those videos to the net. Like this and this and this and this and this. 

But there are more serious consequences, a women only insurance company has done some research and discovered that  £20 million worth of damage a year has been done to homes by women exercising. With an average of just 21 square feet of free space in today’s living rooms it is hardly surprising that furniture, ornaments and anything else nearby goes flying. And with 86 per cent of the respondents already owning a Wii – or planning to buy one things are going to get a lot worse.

Other news is that Wiii Fit is being used for injured  athlete rehabilitation, experimentation says that thoretically 2 year olds can use it, it has been telling thin people that they are fat and an employee has managed to blag one on expenses. 

I can see a lot more milage in this. It is a new human experience and millions of people are using it so all sorts of strange things are bound to happen. And this will only increase as more games use the balance board.

  1. If you read the study you come to realize, from quotes like, “615,422 (2 per cent) women having damaged their TV set – many getting a little carried away on computer consoles, such as the Nintendo Wii”, that this has little to do with Wii Fit except that is currently the highest profile “at-home” exercise. In fact dancing is the most popular at home exercise which means alot more damage is probably coming for dancing “accidents”.
