Cool. Is that what the real Balance board is gonna do?
Unfortunately I don't think so. Given that there are so many people tossing there wiimotes through there TVs, adding something that actually wobbles to gameplay=disaster.
As far as I know, the real balance board will register weight distribution, but will be completely stationary.
I think its supposed to have some movement in it as its designed to be part of entertaining workout programs. If all it did was register weight distribution to give on screen movement it would be pretty useless for its designed purpose. I doubt its going to have extensive wobble, but probably enough to make you put some effort into balancing which in turn helps core body exercises. Of course I could be completely wrong, we'll all find out when Nintendo releases the thing.
I hope so, from the demo I saw, it was completely flat. It would be nice if it had a little pop out that could raise the board.
If not, I still think the balance board has a lot of potential, if they go full force with it. The movement issue with Wii tennis could be resolved a little (the next tennis game that is) by adjusting your weight on your left or right foot to move. Obviously skate/snow boarding games would benefit from the balance board, as would most sporting games.
Or it could go the way on the konga drums.
