This week: a relationship ruined by text messages. An out of shape gamer looking for an easy way out. A broke-ass gent with an eye on Craigslist. Three sad souls, three desperations—three readers in need.
Nike recently challenged 78 artists to remix and adapt the function of Nike shoes. Nick Marsh, one of the contestants, took a pair of Air Maxes and imported the internals of a Wii Balance Board to turn his shoes into controllers.
The Rowing Machine for Wii is a cheap-looking rowing machine that has a spot for a Wiimote in the handlebars. It should make playing Super Mario Galaxy 2 next to impossible.

A British doctor was so kind as to write a letter to the New England Journal of Medicine, handily summarizing what is known about Nintendo-related injuries. The gist: Your Wii wants you dead.
Another day, another story about some cheap, plastic Wii motion control accessory finding an application outside of gaming. In this case, it's the balance board, and not only is this device helping stroke victims recover, it's saving them money, too.

What is Nintendo up to for E3? With the new DSi out and Wii MotionPlus coming out, it looks like a year for software. And these two new trademarks may reveal their announcements early.
Just down that whole shaker of salt right now, please, because some obscure Dutch games retailer has given Nintendo's press shy MotionPlus attachment a July 10 European release date.
If you've been disappointed by the level of calories burning from flailing wrists, Wii Jog can add the element of walking into almost any Wii title.
The add-on is a special channel for the Wii, called the "Health Checkup Channel", that provides two-way communication between doctors and their patients.
