A new gadget has been created called Cykill using the Arduino development platform which forces you to work out to play on your Xbox. Requiring that players maintain a certain cycling speed to be able to provide power to the Xbox console.
Stop cycling and power is cut to the console and the Cykill device will not allow you to power on your Xbox unless you are providing sufficient pedal power. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about this new Arduino project which is sure to get you in shape.
Gyms are dreadful and a massive time commitment. Personal trainers are effective, but outrageously expensive. Serious dieting leads to a lifetime of suffering, especially in America. Routines such as “yoga” and “walking the dog” are simply pseudo fitness, and rarely improve the waistline. Gaming+Fitness is the future, undoubtably. Cykill is a friendly first step.
If you are interested in creating your very own Cykill device to help you get in shape while you game, full instructions have been published to the Instructables website and can be accessed via the link below.
