Wiiwaa is a new interactive video game which uses a small stuffed animal as the game’s controller. The game is design by Zoink Games exclusively for the Nintendo Wii. (Video)
The game utilizes the Wii’s motion-sensing controller implanted inside a stuffed puppet of the game’s main character. The user shakes and bounces the puppet around, as the on-screen version mimics the same actions. The puppet can be thrown, slingshot and moved in a variety of other ways all of which are acted out on screen. This idea is ideal for children, giving them a way to connect the game to reality and also encouraging more physical activity than simply thumb movements.
