More about this machine. Today when I started to work out with the Wii it asked me if I'd seen XXX (another player in my house) lately. There's no option for yes or no. It then went on to say, "have you noticed how XXX has been looking lately?" Then it gave me options indicating more or less fitness. So now it's not only rude to me it wants to GOSSIP! Fortunately, I laughed and pressed on.
It does raise a question or two though. These things were designed in Japan. Do they so misunderstand American culture that they don't understand how creepy that is? or WORSE...do they understand American culture enough that they realize we have no societal perception of what's appropriate behavior anymore? Hmmm....I need to think about that.
In the meantime, I'll be riding the island bike on the program. It is great! You just step on the Wii Fit alternating feet as if you're pedaling and chase down targets. It won't let you run over people but there are ramps and water and hills and dales. Lots of fun.
Wii Fit - just don't take it too seriously.
