Being a gamer myself there is always that point where I could go and do exercise or I could finish that next level and then usually I end up not going to the gym.
Now there is a solution for my first world problem. BitGym has created a control system for playing iOS games while you are on your favourite exercise equipment. Right now it is a racer (that looks a lot like Outrun) and you control the cars steering with you head and your acceleration is based on your exercise rate.
Check out the video:
nifty little tool, but I am not sure if the movements you have to do to get through the game are good for your posture

Fitness centers are entering the next lap of their evolution with the NeuroActive Bike, a new breed of exerciser that simultaneously trains the body and the brain.
The bike, engineered by Dr. Bergeron and BCA’s international team of brain specialists, enable users to combine cardio workouts with brain workouts.
Users of the NeuroActive Bike may select from 22 brain-stimulating exercises that train different parts of the brain, including: memory of names and faces, 3D visuo-spatial skills, concentration, word naming and arithmetic. As they pedal, they manipulate a wireless mouse to interact with the computer and complete the NeuroActive Program, the only brain-fitness program that uses an advanced artificial intelligence and a series of word problems and visual exercises to train the entire brain and sharpen 16 cognitive functions.
Get on down to the Gym and get fit and smart at the same time 🙂
