Their solution? Yet to be fully disclosed. But Iwata dripped tantalizing details that may well flourish into the next unforeseen sensation. In a landscape obsessed with wearable technology, Nintendo hopes to base this new health-centric vision on something called “non-wearables.” The term itself feels like a joke, the nonsensical feint of a sore loser sick of being bullied. Oh you drink water to stay alive? I’ll drink rocks! You breathe oxygen? Ha, I’m going to breathe paint fumes! The future is wearables, you say?… Non-wearables it is! Nintendo, once again, has decided to zag where everyone else thinks it should zig.
Unlike most folks, myself included, he’s bullish. I hope he’s right. I fear he’s not. This sounds like a whole lot of hand-waving to me — and not the Wiimote variety.

I'm Erik. I think my life is cool so I write about it here for all the world to see. I'm proud to have been a fighting sioux before the logo was retired, and I will always call myself a fighting sioux. I intend this blog to represent my thoughts at any given moment in time. Therefore: I tend to post pictures and whatnot about lacrosse, Fighting Sioux, the University of North Dakota, Pokemon, Star Wars, and the music that I'm listening to. I also like to post a fair share of original commentary on articles that I read. I tend to "like" posts about generally funny things. I try to keep posts happening every day. But if you take a look at my blog page, you probably already know this.
