We know you've been unable to sleep restfully since the announcement of InterAction Laboratories' 2010 lawsuit
against Nintendo, so you'll be relieved to know the situation is resolved. Nintendo announced this morning that a Maryland judge has summarily dismissed the case, which alleged that Nintendo's Wii Fit games and Balance Board accessory (among pretty much every other Nintendo peripheral) violated patents owned by IA Labs for exergaming devices.
IA Labs' last announced gaming product was the "XR Station,
" a controller attached to a big lever, that players must exert pressure on -- push, pull, lean -- to operate. It also showed the "Sqweeze
" in 2008: a Wiimote peripheral with two rubber grips to squeeze.
