unfit? Maybe a bit over-indulgence has left you wanting
to shed a few points? Don't worry! Get out your gaming
console and spend some time playing Halo, Mortal Combat
or whatever game you like. Wait a minute, how can that
help you get fit?
entrepreneur Richard Coshott approached Top Hex, we
thought his concept was just a little bit zany. He had
patented a device that interfaces exercise equipment with
a gaming console. But like all good ideas, the concept is
unbelievably simple - when you stop exercising, your game
pauses. Keep moving to keep playing your game.
Richard was looking to Top
Hex to turn his ideas into a production design. Several
iterations later and Gamercize has launched the "GZ
Pro-Sport" electronic motivators, compatible with
Xbox, Playstation and even your PC.
The amazing thing about
Gamercize is that the time spent exercising passes very
quickly. A twenty minute session is easy while you are
zapping aliens. Independent research carried out on
Gamercize agrees; a 30 minute session can burn off 500
calories, that's a couple of Mars bars in old money.
Richard is justifiable
very proud of his invention, and delighted with the
controllers that Top Hex has supplied. "Top Hex have
shown dedication and enthusiasm at all stages of this
project", says Richard. "They have worked hard
to meet tight delivery schedules and produced a product
that exceeds my expectations."
