I prefer an old xbox mod i seen. Someone rigged up his excorsise bike to power the xbox. But if i had the money (and space) for one, I'd get one. Could stand to loose a few pounds.

better idea for a way to get people to exercise and play xbox, let the bike power the xbox. stop peddling, the xbox stops working.

I've been surprised for a long while as to why none of the major console companies have released some kind of dynamo for a treadmill or bike that could work in conjunction with a controller.

The idea is good, but there's no way the power produced would be enough to run the Xbox.

@rags_20:

In that case then the exercise bike acts as the on/off switch - drop your workrate below a certain level and the bike breaks the circuit.

Thing is, people would just directly plug in the Xbox instead of giving it through the bike. The throttle control idea works because it actually makes the game easier and more precise to control.

Excellent mod but if you want to exercise then exercise. If you want to play games then play games. Doing both at the same is not as effective.

I disagree. I abhor traditional exercise. I do it. I just find it to be tedious and monotonous. As for your assertion that it's not as effective... Well I can make any claim I want to, too. "Doing both at the same time makes people orgasm."
