New Nintendo Invention Revelation – Combo Sleep Monitor and Projector.

One of Nintendo’s last initiatives under the watch of late President and CEO Satoru Iwata was the “Quality of Life” campaign of 2014, where the Japanese gaming giant announced that it plans to release its own sleep monitor.

Nintendo said it planned to develop the technology with US health company ResMed, which now makes equipment for diagnosis and treatment of sleepdisorders. There’s almost nothing Nintendo can make at this point that’d surprise me,” it comes out with something so far-fetched that you begin to question your own sanity. The QOL device is described as using a smart device in a portable dock, being able to use its cameras and microphone, in addition to the Wii Balance Board, to check a user’s weight and pulse. Today that came in the form of a patent for a quality of life product Nintendo teased a few months ago that will sit on your nightstand and collect “physiological information and/or health information relating to the health or the body of the user, obtained from said physiological information.” According to the documents filed with the World International Patent Organization, it will collect this data using a combination of a microphone, a camera(!) and a sensor before giving you an overall score. (And you thought the Kinect was scary…) Here’s the exact language found in the patent: “This display system is provided with a sensor, a projector and a control means.

It would be permissible, as an example, for the sensor information to be sound information which is detected by a microphone, or image information which is captured by a camera. There is also a microphone included among the features, and Engadget speculates in its report that temperature and pulse rate will be among the metrics tracked by the device.

It’s unclear as to whether the object plugged into the docking station is actually the user’s smartphone or not, but one would reasonably assume that is the case. This data would then be crunched to calculate a user’s “sleep score” and emotional state, with the information projected on their wall or ceiling.

The sensors are designed to detect the user’s pulse rate, temperature, and other related body measurements, at which point the data is uploaded to Nintendo’s servers so that a sleep score can be calculated. A separate report from IGN claims that the sleep monitor will be out by 2016, so we’ve got about a year or so to find out what exactly Nintendo has planned here.

Nintendo has always understood something about our relationship to technology on an elemental level, something that shone through with the Wii but goes all the way back to Donkey Kong, the first game to introduce a concept of a narrative. This terminal system is also able to provide updates to a server system, which can analyse the user-based information and send it back to the terminal. The server system performs an analysis of transmission information acquired after the provided information has been provided, for a plurality of users that have received the provided information, and updates the conditions on the basis of the analysis results. While the patents could describe the final functions of Nintendo’s QOL device, things are always subject to change, as these patents protect the device’s functionality.
