ExerGame Korea Launches at KSF 2009 - Korea Serious Games Festival

Founder of ExerGame Korea, Daniel Joon (3rd from right back row) officially launched his company as the exclusive distributor of Exergame Fitness (www.exergamefitness.com) in South Korea. With the governor on hand to launch the Korea Serious Games Festival 2009 and try out iDance (www.positivegaming.com) and Lightspace Wall and Floor (www.lightspace.com), the media and crowds kept everybody really busy. Besides myself (far left, back row), also on hand to support the launch of ExerGame Korea at KSF 2009 was (left to right, front row) Emily Rosenberry and Basilius van Houte from Positive Gaming and Ed Kassanders and Kurt Turner from Exergame Fitness USA.

Grand Theft BikExergaming

Now, for those not intersted in a robot as a fitness leader, Grand Theft Bicycle is a PC hack based on GTA codes but re-worked so that the two competing gangs represent world leaders (Obama,Blair, Harper & Allis vs bin Laden, Hussein, and Jong-Il). Pedaling on the Borgcycle pedals your character's bike through "Bagdad" city and you use the controls mounted on the handlebars to jump and shoot your way to political and terrorist nirvana. I've been using the Cateye GameBike for a while and always wanted to try games where I could shoot something (not necessarily someone). Looks like GTB has melded the best of GameBike's features with the massively popular Grand Theft Auto series.
The viewer is mounted on the Borgcycle — a stationary, sensor-modified bicycle that operates as a joystick with any PC game — that he or she can pedal through “Baghdad” (which bears an uncanny resemblance to Las Vegas), or shoot Invaders and Insurgents.

Dōmo arigatō Mr. Roboto! Is This The Face of a Future ExerGame Fitness Trainer?

Will one of these $8000 Taizou be your fitness trainer. In Japan where the number of centenarians in the country has doubled to more than 40,000 over the past six years, there is a real need for people to help lead exercises. A cute Taizo is now capable in leading people in 30 different moves, mostly seated which is great for our greying population and people with disabilities. Dōmo arigatō Mr. Roboto! Roboto氏本当にありがとう
