400mph cyclists kill opponents with handlebar-mounted guns
It had to happen: a US company has married an indoor cycle training stand to a Playstation2, creating Gamebike.
'Play don't train," says Gamebike about its $139 unit. The device - created by two US doctors - can be linked up to 'chase' games such as Extreme G Racing, where riders can steer and pedal through "25th century towns and landscapes" at 400mph....Killing people, naturally.
Gamebike was created by Denver orthopedic surgeons Drs. Ted Parks and Craig Davis to "address the boredom of indoor exercise and the epidemic of childhood obesity."
The faster you pedal, the faster you go in the game.
The Gamebike unit - made by CatEye of Japan, the LED cycle light manufacturer - is available at www.gamebike.com and needs an add-on cycle trainer to hold the bike.
"Gamebike eliminates the monotony of indoor exercise, and provides parents with a healthy alternative to get kids off the couch while they play video games," said Davis.
What a great alternative to Pac Man...This quote just kills me: "Gamebike eliminates the monotony of indoor exercise, and provides parents with a healthy alternative to get kids off the couch while they play video games," said Davis.
Yeah, a healthy alternative is getting them on a bike killing people...
