Wii for SAP

This is my nomination for this year’s coolest SDN blog entry award:

“Using our newfound shiny object, we just had to experiment and introduce the Wii to the enterprise. We decided to integrate the Wii remote with an existing Ruby on Rails application connecting to an SAP BW backend. More information on the Rails application developed by Dan can be found here. The application is a resource planner that enables a manager to easily view and plan his upcoming projects, requirements, and available resources with an easy to use drag and drop interface, while utilizing SAP BW planning cubes for it’s model.”

Who says ERP can’t be fun? I wonder what the next application for this is…

UPDATE: This is hitting the blogosphere big time:
