According to the makers of TrekDesk, a World of Warcraft player has shed over forty pounds thanks to exercising while gaming. According to the inventors, TrekDesk treadmill accessory gives players enough space for peripherals to utilize while walking.

Designed to fit any existing treadmill, TrekDesk treadmill desk is an affordable, full sized, height adjustable workstation that allows individuals the opportunity to gain the necessary amount of daily exercise to lose weight, maintain health, reduce stress, prevent disease, strengthen muscles, boost mood and productivity, without requiring additional time during the day or extra motivation.

Dumbest thing I've ever seen.

If you are desperate for this kind of thing just get a mini excercise bike and put it under your desk. It'd hardly cost you anything and you'll actually be able to play the game properly.

I think there's a reason why humans move their hands while walking. Walking prolonged periods of time without the help of your hands (since they must remain at the same location over keyboard/mouse) could be ergonomically bad idea.

Exercising while at computer doesn't seem to be a bad idea. But I think a bike would be better solution than that.

If you need to exercise while gaming you need to reevaluate your lifestyle and priorities.

I remember seeing a video of some guy who hooked up a treadmill to his computer to move his character about back in Vanilla days.  Back then you actually had to run across the zones to get from one point to another... he would run from one end of the continent to another.  So not really a new idea... was done a long time ago.

 

As for losing weight, if you truly wish to lose weight, you'd remove all distractions from your workout... playing a video game, talking on the phone, or watching tv affects your intensity.  If you're going to work out, work out.  The reason you packed on all those pounds is because you took on a casual lathargic sedentary life.  I don't know how many people I see at the gym sitting on equipment barely doing anything but fully engaged in reading some book, watching tv, or chatting it up.  Counter-productive to say the least.  This gimmick doesn't get you to work out because you're focused more on the game than on the workout.

I have actually made one of those already. I have had it for two years. I can focus on the task at hand well at about 2.5 mph. Any faster and its hard to concentrate on the game.
I made one for my mother too. She loves it. She plays card games online. She said she can walk and play for three hours and not realize that much time has past.

Im confused. Exactly what gameplay mechanics does this offer over other MMO's? How do i play it? Nothing gameplay or MMO related have been revealed here this being an MMO site and all...

 

Im blocking ads for a reason...

I was going to mention that one myself, that one actually DOES look like it will lose you weight.

Still no news though on a release date for the Occulus Rift =(, dang I want one of those babies.

Or you could just hit the gym/track for 30 minutes to an hour. I love me some gaming but I don't see this solving the problem of gamers getting fit. I know many fit gamers and for them it isn't about some gimmick, it's about taking care of themselves. Many people have a hard time getting in shape and it has little to do with being a gamer and more to do with themselves.
