GZ PC-Sport Exercise Machine

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Misc. Tech, PC / Laptop, Science, USB

GZ PC_SportGamercize’s GZ PC-Sport has surely been devised for those who can pat their heads and rub their stomachs at the same time. Place it under your desk, connect to your USB mouse or keyboard, and start walking. If you slow down or stop, the peripheral will not work. We call that massive incentive. The Sport lets you know how well you are doing and gauges which level you are on. The Power Stepper steps up (pun intended) when you adjust it to a brisk walk and the Endurance Cycle lets you pedal away while chatting, e-mailing, or other online activities. You can purchase a full package or simply purchase the PC-Sport and use your own exercise machine for prices beginning at £69.95 (~$140.00.)

To accomplish his objective, he studied how people walked for the first time. He then gave Flame seven motors and a balance mechanism created with stability algorithms. Daan is hoping that the technology will be used to help treat those with walking disabilities.
