SharePoint on a Nintendo Wii

Standard

Back at Christmas I showed what SharePoint looked like on a Apple IPhone/ITouch.

The other night I was babysitting my god daughter and after she had gone to bed I turned on the Nintendo Wii to play a bit of Mario Kart but when I turned it on I noticed it had the internet connection.  I understand you have to pay for this to be added to your Wii.  As it loads the browser it says it is powered by Opera.

The TV is a Samsung 32" – great picture.

I entered, using the Wii remote pointing at the screen, the address of my test site and load the page.

This is the same screen you get when entering your password.

I’m using ISA 2006.  The text boxes aren’t the same size but still work.

Front page loaded normally but doesn’t fully fit on the screen.

Same for the calendar – not the whole calendar fits on – only a few dates

On the bottom of the Wii remote is the ‘B’ button.  If you hold that down and move the controller in the direction you want to see, you can navigate around the page.  In the image below you see me moving it down from top right to bottom left

    It is often awesome to see wherever technological innovation goes and the future of gaming is no various. There are quite a few cool and incredibly progressive technologies arising. There is no way to tell which a single will make the up coming major wave, but a single matter is for confident, it will have something to do with obtaining rid of the remote as we know it!
