The Wiicane by Touch Graphics uses Wii motion tracking technology to provide real-time feedback as users walk up and down a 30′ long indoor course.  It is promoted as a ” system for promoting proper use of the long cane in orientation and mobility training for young children and others […] By practicing with WiiCane, some users may learn to walk straight without veering, potentially leading to safer independent travel.”
