iDance Meets Suny Cortland – by Amy Marks

The past week SUNY Cortland has been lucky enough to experience exergames fitness. Exergame Fitness USA is a technology based excersising program that combines video games with physical activity. In class we were able to experience the iDANCE (see youtube video below) and on Friday were able to experiment with other systems. Some systems included riding a bike that makes a car drive, running on a step master to move your players on a basketball game and a boxing bag that generates a fighting video game. The technology was unreal and something I have never experienced before! Unfortuantely I was unable to attend a workshop held on Monday and Wednesday night because of prior obligations but I talked to others who attended and had a blast working with the system.

My personal favorite was the game where you rode a bike that generated your car and you were able to control the steering. If you stopped pedaling, then your car stopped moving. By the end of the game, my legs were cramped, I was covered in sweat and completely motivated to try again and beat my previous score (I was unable to find pictures, but will hopefully be back with some soon!). It was also fun to play with the iDANCE but more importantly, interesting to learn how the system worked and its capabilities!

If you would like to follow the men of Exergame Fitness, they are on Twitter and can follow them – I just joined and am already addicted! It was exciting to have the opportunity to experience such technology and learn a new outlet to exercising!
