“Physical exertion” and “fun” may not be words that a lot of people would put together, but we’ve already seen examples looking to making exercise more enjoyable for those that aren’t naturally drawn to it. Icaros is a ‘bodytainment’ system that uses VR to let users fly while they exercise. Another example would be Step Ahead: Zombies, a story-themed walking challenge that uses wearables to encourage workers to escape an in-game zombie invasion through real world activity. Now, using wearable technology and 3D printing, Edipulse from Exertion Games Lab is printing chocolate according to how much the user worked out.
