It’s been about 9 months since we heard anything about the Wii Vitality Sensor, which as it happens is the incubation period for humans. Today, word hit that Nintendo has announced a press event with the American Heart Association on May 17th. The invite doesn’t indicate what the event will pertain to, but since the Wii Vitality sensor monitors heart rate it seems like a logical assumption.
We know very little about the device, with the exception that it will be designed to help the user relax after a long and stressful day of work. It will do this with a number of on screen queues while monitoring the wearers heart rate.
