(FR) SYSTEME COMMANDE PAR L'UTILISATEUR ET COMBINANT JEU VIDEO ET EXERCICE PHYSIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) A user controlled combination video game apparatus (102) and exercise system. The system includes video game apparatus for displaying an interactive video game (110) requiring user participation. The interactive video game includes a playing piece. The system also includes hand activity sensor apparatus (114) for providing a signal associated with the independent and unconstrained movement of each of a user's hands for determining at least one aspect of the playing piece within said interactive video game and a playing piece. The system can also include feet activity sensor apparatus (116) for providing a signal associated with an activity executed by the user's feet, and torso activity sensor apparatus (118) for providing a signal associated with an activity executed by the user's torso for determining at least one aspect of the playing piece within the interactive video game.
