So, Nintendo announced that they're making a non-wearable Quality of Life.... something.
This thread asks you to predict what it is.

My guess is that it will involve the Vitality Sensor in some way.

It'll be Mr. Resetti popping up when you leave the house, reminding you that you've left the gas on.

A Wii fit board that just plugs directly into the tv and is a standalone thing.

Compulsory tingle costumes for everyone, so people are shamed into getting into shape.

My guess is a small handheld device that could be pocketed, like the 3DS, to record how many steps you take. It also has specific programs installed, like a version of Brain Age, a version of Eyesight Training, a version of Wii Fit, etc.

Apparently it's more advanced than "wearable" hardware (according to Nintendo's blurb). The only thing I can think of that fits the bill would be something inserted directly into your brain, possibly via the nose.

That's pretty much in line with what I was thinking...if it even sees the light of day at all. I know it's been announced, but so was the Vitality Sensor, and hee-haw happened with that.

I think folk are getting confused by them calling it a "platform" & they instantly think some sort of gaming related hardware, as for what I think it could be? I really don't know but I reckon it's going to be so out of the box that it will turn some heads.

It's an interesting start: sleep is one of those things that appears in the news every few months and we could all do with more of it at better quality. Also, totally not what I had in mind! Embarrassed

Sleep is something I'm really bad at so I'm pretty interested in it. Anything that can get me more rest for less wasted time is good by me (no thumbs up smiley? Sort it out!) :cherry:

Yeah, I've had a rubbish sleep pattern the last few months so this could be a godsend.
