Interactive Exercise Equipment
With all of the Hi-Tech gaming systems out there, and so many exercise gadgets, it's a wonder to me that nobody has combined them. I would like to see a peice of exercise equipment that would challenge me mentally and physically, as well as alow me to compete with other users, even if they are in another part of the world.

I believe that this would motivate a lot of people who would otherwise never exercise to get busy.

I believe that the sheer boredom of repetitons on a weight bench, or running on a treadmill are enough detour many people from exercising.

If you had a stationary bike, rowing machine or treadmill with a large T.V. screen in front of you, and a system that allowed you to choose a "Canyon Run", "Running From the Mafia","Mountain Bike Trail" or even "Rowing With the Whales" or compete with others on the same network. The graphics could be every bit as good as PS2, the X-Box or any other gaming system.

This could be used as either home exercise equitment, or we could even create an entire "Virtual Gym".

I believe that this could absolutely revolutionize the exercise equiptment industry, and promote healthier life styles.
