Wiiwaa

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.
