Is there anything a Nintendo Wii can’t do? It seems the answer is “no,” because apparently on top of being able to work out and play video games with the Wii, you can also save lives.

Students at the University of Alabama at Birmingham are working on a downloadable software program that would train users in CPR, giving them the ability to save lives. The Wii is taking over the world, but at least it’s being kind to our hearts.
