Researchers at the University of Alabama at Birmingham will be examining how the motion-controlled Nintendo Wii remote can be used as part of a PC software based program to help teach CPR. The American Heart Association has already pledged $50,000 to help fund this promising student program. Though nothing has been said by Nintendo in regards to the idea, it’s hoped that they’ll pick it up as an official application.
