The Wii Diet Chair is yet another reason to put Nintendo's infectiously fun console on your holiday shopping list. The chair was made by Ryo Yamamoto of Team Lab and was designed to make keeping track of weight loss fun and easy.

The Wii Diet Chair has a Wii Balance Board underneath the cushion that sends the user's weight to a computer program for easier tracking. The geekiest/best part of the Wii Diet Chair is the way it keeps track of user progress. Final Fantasy V is used to symbolize the user getting closer to their goal weight. The more weight you lose, the further the game progresses. Win.
