Long Reliever automatizes the motions necessary to play Wii Sports by capitalizing on the limited motion sensing capabilities of the Wii-mote. By continuously activating the “pitch / swing” gesture and repeatedly pressing the A button, the sculpture plays game after game of endless 1-player baseball. This game could go on forever.
