The Wii Vitality Sensor is a cancelled accessory for the Wii. Announced by Satoru Iwata at E3 in 2009, not much is known about the Vitality Sensor and how it will be integrated into video games. It has been suggested by Iwata that it will be used to relax the player, telling them their heartbeat and about their body.

During E3 2010, the device was not shown or even mentioned. When asked why, a Nintendo spokesperson said that they didn't feel it was the right time to show it off just yet, saying that they would at a later date.

On July 5, 2013, it has been confirmed that the Vitality Sensor has been cancelled due to testing issues.[1]
