The Gamercize Sport system is a games console add-on that prevents you from playing unless you exercise at the same time. We’ve blogged about similar products before, but this is the first one we’ve seen that works with the X-Box, Playstation and GameCube consoles. We’re daft enough to like the idea of rationing fun by effort, now all we need is a version that controls our pizza oven. £39.95.
Gamercize interacts with your game console’s controller stopping it working when you are not exercising and letting you play normally when you are exercising. There is a sensor on the Gamercize which detects exercise on virtually any exercise machine by way of magnets. There are two main types of exercise machine that are suitable for Gamercizing, a cycle and a stepper, as these machines leave your hands free to operate the controller. With the unit setup correctly Gamercizing can begin! Simply exercise at a steady rate and enjoy your game.
