Hands up – how many people would purchase this Walkstation, thinking they’d be able to fit in at least an hour’s exercise each day as they plough through their RSS feeds, but after a week, it’d start accumulating dust, as the couch in front of a Hollyoaks episode is more appealing than jogging whilst surfing.
Priced at $6,500, you’d think consumers would be able to afford a personal trainer for that amount of money, but maybe it’s aimed at gym junkies like Madonna, who ensure they’re working out even whilst on the loo, by straining extra-hard to burn more calories.
If there was some form of incentive, like a LolCat being delivered to your email inbox for every 100 calories burned, or access to your favourite tech blog (Tech Digest, natch), allowed only when you attempt Speedy Gonzalez-like speeds, then I can imagine it’d work. But it doesn’t. And it costs the price of a small car. Anyone, err, keen…?
