The Dana Centre, part of the Science Museum in London, will host an event on the 26th called "Play Away the Calories" which is centered around a certain exercise-based game. That's right: Super Team Games Wii Fit. Exercise expert Tim Cable will speak and will also measure calories burned during Wii Play sessions versus other exercises, and versus normal video games. Other speakers will discuss the obesity problem and the history of health-conscious gaming. Attendees will also get a chance to step onto the Balance Board and try out Wii Fit.

We think we can already predict favorable results for the experiment, thanks to Nintendo's sponsorship of the event. It still sounds like an interesting exhibit, and it's at least an opportunity to play Wii Fit if you happen to be in town.
