American blogger Jeremy Fielding (Jeremy Fielding) created for his children a device based on a rowing machine, which was connected to the console Nintendo Wii. Now, if young gamers want to play video games, one of them will have to play sports so that the TV screen does not go out.
Fielding said he found an old rowing machine on the Craigslist site and turned it into a “human-powered” generator using internal flywheel motors. By connecting it to the Nintendo Wii power source, children are forced to exercise regularly if they want the game to continue.The blogger stressed that he deliberately put small battery packs in the generator, shutting down a minute after the inactivity. The idea of a man is to create a “compromise between games and physical activity.”
