Clearly this is a metaphor for something.

Add strain gauges to the handles and pedals of an elliptical to control steering and braking, along with thumb and finger buttons on the handgrips and use it to control a multiplayer first-person-shooter game. Best played with immersive VR goggles. The speed of your character is controlled by your effort. As you take damage, the resistance on your machine goes up, making you slower. A heartrate monitor can cause your player to overheat and seize up if you too carried away.

       I'm not a video game player, but (+) for anything that makes it easier for me to stay longer at the gym.

       I beg to differ about the immersive VR goggles, but yes.

       I think this would be best used with the Light Cycle game from Tron.
