Nintendo has postponed its plans to issue a sleep sensor. Originally wanted the Japanese game developer put a Quality of Life Unit (QOL) in April 2016 on the market.
Tatsumi Kimishima, the current president of Nintendo, says that the plans have been postponed:
“We believe that in the current state, no product can bring it handles on the market with sleep and fatigue. We do believe that there is potential in the QOL sector, therefore we will continue to consider development in the future. “
Nintendo has previously partnered with RedMed, a company that develops contactless sensors for medical diagnosis and treatment of sleep disorders. In 2009, Nintendo showed at E3, the Wii Vitality Sensor, which had to be fixed on the finger. There is no information to come out after the announcement.
It is still unknown when more information will appear on the QOL-products of Nintendo. Currently, the Japanese game giant is busy preparing for their latest console, the NX. The expectation is that the NX still be released this year.
