Leslie used the other half of the lab and used different technology. She had 4 stations setup. One was an Xbox 360 with the controllers hooked to steppers and bikes, so you had to be stepping or pedaling in order for the game to work properly. The next station was the Nintendo Wii system with doubles tennis setup. There was a mini-exercise bike that you had to pedal to work and steer to collect items. The last station was an Playstation 2 setup with an eye toy to pick up your movements.
It's pretty cool to see all of this technology that is possible out there. Not every school can afford this technology, but as a physical educator I should be aware of what kind of new and different equipment is out there for me to use.
