Nintendo has a new and unique game for its DS portable game system called Flash Focus: Vision Training in Minutes a Day. The game trains the users in hand-eye coordination, peripheral vision, and visual acuity.

Nintendo says that top athletes have used vision-training programs to give them an edge on the field and now any one can do it. "Flash Focus represents another one of our software titles that delivers fun with a purpose," says George Harrison, Nintendo of America's senior vice president of marketing and corporate communications. "Flash Focus should be in the training arsenal of every coach in the country, but it's also ideal for casual game players of any age who want to keep their vision sharp."

Example activities in the game are hat dance where a circle is placed in one of three boxes and then moved about. The user has to follow the correct box. Another activity flashes symbols on the screen and users have to hit a button when they match. The game is available today.
