Domyos Interactive System is new type of exercise game
by Mark R
Considering the WiiFit and Dance Dance Revolution have sold well in the non-gaming crowd, I have been wondering when some company was going to come out with something like this.
The Domyos Interactive System is targeting a whole new type of audience of non-gamers as it doesn’t require any console to plug it into, but fits right into any television set or display.
From there, the user can work out with one of the game cartridges on an exercise mat that includes a sort of DDR type game that several players can join in on. (Provided they have the correct number of mats.)
There is also this hurdle sort of game, and this system keeps track of your calories burned. There is a video of it after the jump.
My source also reveals that it has “a bike attachment and a pair of reflective gloves for martial arts type fast reflex stuff”. You may have noticed that you didn’t see that in the video, and neither did I.
Well, my source didn’t have a price on this gaming device, nor any sort of availability date. You might ask yourself whether or not it can compete in a video game client with Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo, but lets let the consumers decide.
