nintendo‘s ‘wii u’ console was just announced at E3 2011, alongside a multi-input game controller for the device
that doubles as its own screen for both gaming and navigation of websites or other media.

the new tablet-sized controller features a 6.2-inch touch screen, framed by traditional button controls (A/B/X/Y buttons,
L/R buttons, ZL/ZR buttons, and two analog circle pads, alongside power, home, start, and select). a built-in gyroscope
and accelerometer permit the gesture-based interaction that defines the game system, while a rumble feature and stereo
speakers provide feedback. the controller also features a camera and microphone.

at 1.8 inches thick, 6.8 inches wide, and 10.5 inches long, the ‘wii u’ console is backwards compatible with all wii accessories
and games, loading 12-centimeter high-density and wii optical discs. up to four wii remote controllers can interface with the device,
which supports HDMI audio and video output, up through 1080p.

together the new products offer new ways of interacting with wii games. the system is designed to switch seamlessly
between viewing on a an external screen and on the controller itself, and in fact a monitor is no longer necessary
for wii devices to interact with one another. in addition, in a golf game, for example, the ‘wii u’ controller can be played
on the floor to simulate the virtual golf ball and the ‘roughness’ of the grass or sand surface, while a wiimote is used as a club.
