“Nike has been at the forefront of integrating technology with their gear for years.  Nike recently gave the task out to 78 artists to “hack” a pair of Nike’s for something truly extraordinary.  Nick Marsh did just that and hacked all of the internal circuits from a Wii Fit Board and put them inside a pair of Nikes.  Is this a cool concept that people could get into to change their gaming? Thoughts? Comments?” (You MUST write 5 sentences or you will get ZERO CREDIT)

    No, because Nike’s can cost 100-200 dollars and its just not smart i mean think about it if you put Wii stuff in your shoe then walk out side when its raining you could die. So no i think its the dumbest thing i ever heard of!

    yea i guess thats cool but i dont think people wear shoes on that game. People will only like that probley because its cool and they want to brag. I think and maybe some others think that its kinda stupid its smart to come up with that good of ideas, but come u with good ones atlease. Some people would probley buy them if they ever sold, but probley not alot cause why would you want to wears shoes at home playing video games it would get hot.

    I actually thonk its pretty cool. Instead of useing the wii remotes to run you can actually run in place! Now thats pretty cool. but also i would think the shoes would be alot of money, but it would be worth it. Now the wii is getting better and better at being reallistic.

    Yes it is a good concept because it can be a good way to have fun playing the Wii. But I don’t think this is called for because people should just buy the Wii board when they buy the Wii if they want to play the Wii Fit to stay in good shape. Also people are going to take the shoes out of hand. They are going to start wearing those every where. But how did someone come up with something like this? It’s sounds really stupid kind of.

    Well, It dose seem like a great idea.
    But the thing is…
    Why would anyone buy them?!
    I mean Nike’s are popular but still,
    Who would honestly buy a pair of shoes that could cause you death when it rain’s?!?!?!?!?!
    I mean Nike’s are the most wanted shoe’s thought so… I guess some people would buy them….
    I know i wouldn’t though. I would rather use the controller’s instead of some shoe’s that could kill you when wet.

    I think this will change the gaming of every one because now they have the shoes being used for playing a game. I really think it is a bad idea to have shoes for games because you might be playing and you could suddenly fall just because you are a little bit far. The new shoes i think they won’t get very popular at the same time. I would rather stick to what they already have for the gaming systems.

    Well, it will probably catch on. I think it will because it is a way to have fun easily. Also, it is a way to get fit easily. People could probably get into that because of the reasons already stated. It might not catch on though because some people might not want to have to jump around so much.

    No,because some nike’s cost alot of money. I think it was just a waist of money for people to buy a wii and take peace out of the wii and and connect them to your shoes. I understand that you can take it off.

    I think its an O.K idea. I think its an O.K idea because like the wii fit, you get a workout with every step you take. I think its a bad idea because when it rains or snows, you wont be able to wear them outside or they could shock you. I think its something that wont catch on because they took pieces out of a game and put it in a shoe. I wouldn’t buy the shoes, id just rather wear regular shoes and play the regular wii.

    yes because then people will be able to play the wii fit and not have to stand on a board . but then at the same time alot of people dont play the wii. and i think that the shoes will cost alot of money and people dont have the time or money to pay just for some shoes when you can just get the board and its way easyer.

    i really don’t know much about wii and stuff. the nike wii shoes sounds like a stupid idea and i think people wouldn’t really buy that stuff. if i had a wii i wouldn’t buy them shoe wii things because i think there not worth spending your money on and you can just some other shoes from the mall that look way better.

    This will be cool because it makes the Wii fit board disappear from your house. It can will work for wii so that’s cool. My thoughts would be that it’s succesful and cheap somehow. My other thoughts for it is that wii will release these for a profit. My comment on this is awesome job.

    Yes it is a good idea because people could hate the wii fit board so they could like those shoes. They would like it because shoes are cooler than a board. Shoes are the better option between shoes and board. Wii games are easier with shoes. But with the board you can control it.:) 😉 😛

But thats beside the point they havent invented any thing some other guy did first that was my comment.

But, I think that it would be fun and people who like to game and stuff like that would buy them. I think that It would cost more than just regular Nike’s and some people might not be able to afford them. So i think they wouldn’t be so popular.

    I think that it can be a “cool” concept if people want a shoe that plays music ?I mean really who would want to spend money on a shoe that plays music and your basically waisting Money for real shoes that you can actually wear but if you can where the shoes and listen to music at the same time then thats fine but it just depends on how you can spend your money and if its on something stupid or not.

    i think it might catch on because Nike shoes are popular, but it probably wont be that big. People would like this because you can use shoes instead of a board on wii fitness. I don’t have a wii though so i wouldn’t get it, but other people might. It is a bad thing too because, if the shoe gets dirty or damaged it will mess up. It might be big, and it might not.

    I don’t think it would be very smart because if ur goin to play a game such as Wii it should be inside the house not to be outside and every where in the world with them. I mean what if its raining outside and you get the shoes wet you can get electrocuted and DIE do people not think these days. I no for a fact i would never wear those shoes in my life in less I’m inside my house.

    I guest it would be cool. I really dont like playing my we unless it has motion because the other games are not that realistic. But with the Nike shoes it would be more realistic. I would not buy the shoes any way because when i out grow them i will not be able to the game any more. The only way I would buy them is if i could put the game in different shoes.
