My gym like most has rows of treadmills with TV screens
the people to watch the news while they're running.
The idea is to have treadmill races with animations
the positions of the runners on an animated track on
every other screen instead of the news shows nobody's
If you wanted to participate, you'd put in your name,
not, and start running. You're avatar would be shown on
track running against others who chose to participate.
So the race wouldn't have to start at the same time,
simply be given your position in the race had you started
the same time by using your current speed.
||Nice. You could have an entire virtual triathlon, competing against other people from around the world.
||Yea, once you go digital you can do lots of fun stuff
||+ Well yes, I like this. My question is, do I really
have to run, or could my avatar just do it for me?
||There's definitely a market for a comfy armchair with little motorised running feet sticking out the front, that you can lounge on in front of your treadmill watching the treadmill screen, while the motorised feet do the running for you.
