The hardest part about video games is staying in shape in the real world. And vice versa. It’s a no-win situation when you commit time to making one of your personalities – virtual or real – more fit to make their way through their respective worlds. That is, until the Frevola T7A treadmill.
Self-billed as the human-centered sportainment dream machine, the TZA has an entertainment module built into it to appeal to the kid in all of us (the same kid that has a few too many cookies and now needs to work them off). You’ve got a few options for in-run entertainment. You can select a personalized avatar which moves in the speed and style that you’re running or walking in on the treadmill. You can select music or video to listen to on the station. It’s got a USB input for you to play your personal music, movies, or slideshows. Or, the best option: play Nintendo.
Built into the TZA is a touchscreen NES system which bases the speed of your character on the speed of your real life…you(?). Run your avatar through a nostalgic maze of hurdles, obstacles and pitfalls to distract yourself from the fact that you’ve been running for an hour on a treadmill. Check out the video and stats below, or go to their site to order yours.
