Nintendo reveals heart-tracking Wii Vitality SensorOne of the more interesting announcements from Nintendo today, was Satoru Iwata announcing the latest health-related peripheral for the Wii. The Wii Vitality Sensor. The purpose of the device is a little confusing and we aren’t sure just how it will be implemented in a game, but here’s the deal.

The device is basically a biorhythm sensor that connects to your finger and transmits your heart rate to the Wii. How will that be used in gameplay? We have no idea. Our guess is that this is more for the Wii Fit Plus.

Eizo's FlexScan monitors activate when you are nearIt’s a good idea. Not just because it’s cool, but also because it’s green. We’re talking monitors that activate or deactivate based on the mere presence of humans. It’s almost alive. Or may seem that way. It’s how Eizo’s 20-inch FlexScan EV2023W-H and 23-inch EV2303W-T roll. They’ll save you energy and money. And maybe help you shed some of that some of that green guilt.

The built-in motion sensor on the monitor switches to standby mode when a human is not detected for 40 seconds. Aside from that, both of these monitors are pretty typical. You’ll get 1600 × 900 native resolution, 178-degree viewing angles, and a 3000:1 contrast ratio for the EV2023W and 1920 × 1080 native resolution, 160-degree viewing angles, and a 1000:1 contrast ratio for the EV2303W.

TF2000 proximity sensor
If you have many untrustworthy people around you where you work, you may want to lock your PC whenever you step away from it. This prevents someone from sabotaging your work, viewing sensitive documents or playing a nasty prank on you. Still, you might forget, so the TF2000 Proximity Sensor can automatically lock your system for you, whenever you walk away.

It looks like a small square webcam on top of your screen. Using ultrasound technology, it detects your presence and acts accordingly. The software allows you to specify things like what keystrokes are triggered when you walk away, how long before they’re sent and how far away you have to be before it locks you and anyone else out.

Wii sensor bar gets an upgrade: no wire, has clock

Wii sensor bar
Just when you think you’ve spent enough money on Wii accessories, here comes a new upgraded sensor bar from CYBER Gadget. Unlike some Wii accessories, this one makes alot of sense. The standard sensor bar has that annoying cable running from the bar to your Wii. This one eliminates said annoying wire and gives you a clock too.

At first glance the clock seems like an annoying gimmick, but if you are like me, you quickly realize that it could be a very welcome addition to your entertainment center. I realized after seeing this that I actually could use a clock there since I haven’t used my VCR in almost a decade. One drawback to this device is that it uses 4 AAA batteries to run. It can still be plugged in, but that kinda defeats the whole purpose.
