Dance Treadmill

Normal treadmill with lights in the tread to different foot patterns
  [vote for,

As treadmills go it would be a bit wider and it could have a railing on three sides, but the plastic fiber optic lights woven into the tread would show different foot falls for different dances.

For advanced procedures the treadmill can run backwards and fowards for people who have gotten the timing and foot falls down.

Put two next to each other and link them up for Partner mode.

       Sorry phoenix, I accidentially deleted that last annotation.   

       But in response to it, there are more dances when you turn to your side or turn all around, I expect to see feet to the side and at every other differen angle.

       The deleted annotation also made references to similarities between this and Dance Dance Revolution.

       Oh yes, sorry, I like DDR don't get me wrong but that is a game where you aren't required to turn around or slide your feet. Thanks Waugs, for the addition. Who's did I delete again?   

       BTW, how are we supposed to pronounce your name?
sartep, Jul 24 2003

       I think it was phoenix's words. You can pronounce my name like it's spelled.
waugsqueke, Jul 24 2003

       Wowg's-Squeak? Thanks.
sartep, Jul 25 2003

       So, what circumstance is it where you need to pronounce a username? Just curious.
bristolz, Jul 25 2003

       You guessed it, bristolz. I was just curious.   

       Or is it "too sacred to be uttered aloud?" ; )
sartep, Jul 25 2003

       Maybe [sartep]'s lips move while reading, and wants to know if they're moving the right way.   

       That's the excuse I'd use anyway. I've been curious, too. In my mind, your name is pronounced "Wags-Squeak", which I've always envisioned as the sound effect made by a mechanical toy dog.
Cedar Park, Jul 25 2003

       Well that's incorrect, but do go on saying it that way if it gives you pleasure.
waugsqueke, Jul 25 2003

       The gist of my annotation asked how utile a dance platform could be when it only moves forward and backward.

       I have a theory that if ever someone said it correctly, three times in a row, the heavens would open and a shower of gold coins would fall on you from the end of the rainbow to the sounds of a thousand singing bluebirds; or one solitary passing pigeon would crap squarely on your head...
po, Jul 25 2003

       ...just tried it. It's definitely the latter.
k_sra, Jul 25 2003

       Because when you turn your body it becomes to the eye of the beholder a different direction.
sartep, Jul 27 2003

       That's good advice [bliss], I always try to duck!
k_sra, Aug 02 2003

       I don't know how I missed this one. I like it. I get bored on a treadmill and sometimes do something a bit like this, minus the lights and any gracefulness that should come along with it.   

       Oh, and I pronounce it many ways in my head:
