'Baby and Me' Uses Wiimote to Create a Burping, Crying Baby

The Wii's motion-based gameplay is wonderful, having opened the door to imaginative uses never before possible in video games. While the Wiimote is rugged, that doesn't mean it can handle the sheer abuse of being tossed around, pitched at pets, and rolled haphazardly. Maybe, then, it's fitting that the controller is now being turned into a baby.

The special edition of 'Baby and Me' comes with a doll attachment, meaning that the Wiimote will churn out baby noises while little girls and boys (we hope they're little... ) interact with the toy tot's onscreen counterpart. The fun includes feeding the baby, rocking the baby to sleep, and compatibility with the balance board, which allows, well, rocking the baby to sleep.

Child-rearing sims are simply creepy. Video games are supposed to allow us entrance to fantastical worlds, where we become Navy SEALS or get to raise an army of flying armadillos, not make us tend to a screaming, needy infant.[From: Ubergizmo and Aussie-Nintendo]
