To quote: This is a test of how the Wii Balance Board and Wii Wheel are working as game controllers through GlovePIE and PPJoy. This is the basis for the Wii Racing Xperiment.

257w ago - There's no doubting that Wii Fit has helped many a gamer get back into shape since its release, but a new poll by woman-only insurance firm Sheila's Wheels has discovered that users of the software have caused upwards of £20 million GBP damage to their homes whilst exercising on the Balance Board.
Nearly one in five of the 1,000 women polled admitted to causing accidents while using Wii Fit, including bumping into furniture, smashing flowerpots, banging their heads and of course, pulling muscles.
A whopping 86 per cent of those surveyed said that they either already owned Wii Fit or planned on buying it. See? We told you Wii Fit was a risk to your health. :P
