Oh, please let this be made into the Wii 2 :-)

The VirtuSphere platform consists of a large hollow sphere that sits on top of a base and allows the sphere to rotate 360 degrees. Wearing a wireless, head-mounted display, users can step inside the sphere to fully interact in immersive virtual environments. The VirtuSphere enables 6 degrees of freedom – one can move in any direction; walk, jump, roll, crawl, run over virtually unlimited distances without encountering real-world physical obstacles.

Simple but probably great fun, if you can learn to stand up in it. Reminds me a little of Zorbing, without the hills, water, swimsuits or elbows in the eye, but you get the idea :-).
