to the Wii Vitaloty Sensor?
  
 
It was revealed LAST E3 and we haven't heard anything since. Did Nintendo just agree it was a bad idea and scrap it? It seemed to be a fairly major announcement last year, but it's been completely MIA. Anyone know what the deal is? Think we'll see it this E3?

I hope not, I don't see any real use for something like this, it's just the wii concept going too far.

Doesn't seem very interesting to me... but I could see my mom finding it useful.

I hope so. It's almost as great an idea as the Power Glove...almost.

We will most likely see some info about it at E3.

" According to Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime, more details concerning the Wii Vitality Sensor will be showcased during E3 2010.   "

You need to buy 10, and attatch one to each finger. Can't wait!

It's not a major peripheral so I'm not that surprised we haven't seen much about it so far but I think they'll probably have something in the works.

It's gonna blow your mind when they show it at e3. Maybe.
 
It still seems strange as to why they announced it so soon.

My prediction is that it'll make your finger the pointer.

If it's going to feature heavily this year, why did they announce it last year? Just seems odd.

So is the Vitality Sensor officially scrapped?  Apparently Ubisoft liked the idea enough to make their own vitality sensor but what happened to Nintendo's?  It's hard to imagine them of all company's scrapping such a radical concept.

Brad asked Cammie Dunaway, but they cut that part out.

What?  Nintendo's not on board with every single innovative idea they can think of; they're called prototypes.  If it got scrapped, they just realized that it wasn't that great of an idea after all and they chose to not pursue it any further.
