2) The surface area of adults is about 18,000 cm2 (men) or 16,000 cm2 (women).

3) “The surface area may be calculated by multiplying 0.007184 times the weight in kilograms raised to the 0.425 power and the height in centimeters raised to the 0.725 power.” [Assume a height of 5'8" (170 cm) and a mass of 150 lb (68 kg).]

### Gaming News of WiiU

The recently completed E3 conference had seen the heavyweights like Microsoft, Sony displaying their wares. However the one who stole the show was Nintendo when they revealed their new WiiU. Also called Wii Universal and their new touch screen controller that looks and feels like a computer tablet.

WiiU Controller

This time round I felt that the tablet is a bit large and bulky to move unlike the good old Wiimote. It feels strange too to play games with a tablet especially where you need to swing and jape. Try doing these actions with an ipad and I guess you known what I am talking about.

Anyway the presented video of the WiiU released did show some interesting things you can do with the new controller. Best of all it can be a game machine by itself too. The other part is the augmented view with the large screen TV when playing some of the games like the one which is shown, a baseball game. The part I like is where you can place the controller down and hit the golf ball with a separate WiiMote. Or throwing some ninja’s weapons from the controller. I think theses parts cool.

Well I get my wiiu news and wiiu games from online and also setting up a google alert too.
