iDANCE multiplayer concept is a revolutionary Exergaming system that wasdesigned specifically for environments such as Schools, YMCA’s, JCCs, ParkDistricts and Health Clubs. It is unique in many facets including the fact thatit provides the user with a combination of physical, social and cognitivebenefits and that it accommodates up to 32-players at once on up to 3 separatedifficulty levels with real-time performance feedback.
The iDANCE system can deliver workoutssimilar to the cardiovascular workouts achieved by running or jogging and insome cases even stronger results because the fun element and the challengesthat reside within the game stimulate the players to expend a greater effortthan they would in running or jogging.
Parker Johnson of Exergame Fitness said, “iDANCE is always one of themost popular items when we do events. It attracts people of all ages tocome and try something that they have never done before. While some haveprobably tried the traditional DDR, not many if any have played a wireless,projection based multiplayer game. If you show me something where someoneages 5, 10, 40, and 80 can all play the same game, then I will show yousomething fun and engaging!”
