E3: Nintendo previews next Wii controller, the Vitality Sensor

LOS ANGELES — Get ready for Nintendo’s next big effort to redefine video games. The next major accessory, presumably coming next year sometime, is the Wii Vitality Sensor, a device that attaches to your finger like a medical device to measure your pulse.

The idea is to let players look see inside their bodies, similar to the way the Wii Fit lets them visualize their center of gravity.

“Just as we enable you to see the center of your body balance with Wii fit. the vitality sensor enables you to see the information related to the inner world of your body,” Nintendo President and CEO Satoru Iwata said as he provided a glimpse of the gadget during Nintendo’s E3 press conference.

Although games are generally intended to increase stimulation and excitement, the sensor could lead to games designed to help people relax or even sleep, he explained.
