    The dimensions of the board are 511mm (20.1in) wide by 316mm (12.4in) long by 53.2mm (2.1 in) thick. If you multiply that by 32,114,428, you get a volume of: 3,211,796,058,708 square cms. Can someone check that? It seems way too big.

    18 million Kinects? I don't believe you Justin, there's just no way. It's impossible...I hope.

    I can believe the numbers. The Wii Fit attracted a whole new audience, people not interested in video games but needing ways to exercise at home. The younger set doesn't understand it so well because they are naturally more active and their bodies haven't started to deteriorate... Older folk in sedentary jobs have a lot of health problems but often not a lot of time outside job and family duties to get the kind of continuous exercise that would really help. Definitely I still see a lot of interest in the Wii Fit and the balance board in discussions by the older crowd looking to solve health problems (often to lose weight). Those who have one seem very enthusiastic about it. Long ago in the 8-bit NES days, though, I discovered that it is much easier to hold the controller comfortably when standing up. I often played video games on an exercise bike or stepper also. Handhelds have also always been usable that way. Now I use walk-in-place exercise to keep the circulation going while stuck at a computer many hours a day. The side-step movement is the best for reading on a phone or playing games on a handheld like the DS or iPhone.
