    I think it's most likely their Quality of Life product rather than a gaming device. If it's something that sits on your bedside table monitoring sleep patterns and whatnot, then I'm sure they're looking at an interesting design rather than some boxy clock looking thing.

    I like it that Nintendo enjoys trying new things. I'll be looking forward to seeing what they come up with and slamming it. (Just kidding. I hope it's something really exciting.)

    As for that report of Wii injuries, several of them are due to exercising, and that's not a Wii issue, and actually a great thing that the Wii introduced, the idea that you could use a console for something that doesn't involve just sitting and twiddling your thumbs.

    I guess this is one of those other games machines that AMD will be supplying chips for.

    I'm failing to see how a toroidal screen will be useful in any context (and especially any general-purpose context).

    The closest I got was if it's flat on a table, with multiple people sitting around it, each with their own area of screen to view. But that would have to be a pretty big donut.

    Maybe it's even bigger than that, and you sit inside it. It would be used for single player star trek simulators, for gamers who have no friends.
