Nintendo Miis as ‘Wanted’ Portrait


I thought this was quite funny and creative –

In Japan’s Kanagawa prefecture, it looks like you can add ‘police sketch artist’ the list of occupations being killed by technology. The authorities there evidently skipped the pad and pencil and went straight to the Nintendo Wii when they had to come up with an image of the perpetrator, using the Mii digital avatar tool.

‘Mii’s are avatars created for playing games through the Nintendo Wii – I suppose this simply shows that people will use their creativity and the most proximate/easiest tool to get what they need done?
