Hitting the ol’ stationary bike or treadmill might do wonders for your waistline and heart health, but staring at the same dull scene can suck the life out of staying in shape. Playing video games is exciting and fun, but your little virtual avatar is getting more of a work-out than you are. Now it’s possible to put the energy of exercise into scoring max points in video games.
The people who brought us Guitar Hero have delivered Goji Play unto the couch potatoes of the world, because let’s face it. The people who are into breaking a sweat are already doing it.
Designed for maximum portability, Goji Play can be used with any cardio equipment. A wireless motion sensor clips onto the soon-to-be-physically-fit-gamer, and the wireless controllers can either be attached to the cardio equipment or held in your hands.
To provide a little variety, there are currently 12 games and apps available, with the catalog expected to gain new titles soon.
Of course, you don’t want to forget all the fun actually has a purpose, which is why real-time fitness metrics such as distance, time, and calories burned can be accessed during your workout.
The Goji Play system, which includes two wireless game controllers, an activity sensor, micro USB charging cable, wall charger, and two foam batons, is compatible with iPad 3+, iPad Mini, iPhone 4s+, and iPod Touch 5th Generation. It’s available for $99.99, with a holiday special letting you save 20% on multiple unit orders.
