It is rare to find a gaming accessory so ham-handed and ridiculous that you just know this is going to be a patent troll situation where they start suing Microsoft Kinect for stealing their “gaming standing up” idea. But you have to hand it to this guy for his tenacity. There are plenty of YouTube videos up showing him showing it off and the real money shot is where he’s brought in a “real teenager” to declaim its virtues.
This thing is basically a treadmill with a joystick on it. You run around, turn the joystick, and play PC games. Then, when the joy wears off, you can start using it as a clothes hanger and then, when you’re finally sick of the thing, you can put it out on the street for some other sucker to find and take home.
Anyway, it’s available for pre-order now for $495. It works with Macs and PCs without drivers.
