Wii

Wow.  We just got a Wii for the Slide office and it just might be the death of all productivity.  😉

That thing kicks ass.  I won’t lie to ya, I thought it was kind of a quirky, potentially lame, idea when it first launched.  I mean, the thing sports 1990’s era video game graphics and has these weird nunchuk-like controllers.  Very odd.

After playing tennis and golf on the Wii, though, I must say that they’ve absolutely hit the nail on the head with the user experience design.  The tactile feedback that they’ve built into the Wii remote controllers is incredible.  You can place tennis shots accurately by timing your swing.  You can produce slice or topspin.  You can hook or slice a golf shot.  It’s amazing.

I want one.
