A unique experiment allowed two gamers-gone-enviromentalists to harness the sun's rays to power a Nintendo Wii. Solar panels were installed to collect energy and the Wii, a television and two speakers were able to operate for up to 8 hours at a time.

Implications - On average, the components of a full Nintendo Wii experience require about 45 watts to function normally. Thus, a solar Nintendo Wii in direct sunlight will gain up to 8 hours of game time. This is sure to catch the attention of eco-conscious consumers, which are growing in numbers daily. Ultimately, the solar Nintendo Wii is an example of a truly modern approach to technology and gaming.
