Remember the handlebar controllers on the Paperboy arcade machines? You really felt like you were controlling that cartoony bike on the screen, right? Well, what if you had a whole bike that you had to pedal to play an updated version of that classic game? It’d basically look like PaperDude VR.
PaperDude VR—the creation of digital design shop Globacore—uses a Kickr bike sensor to send data about speed to an iPad running the app and a Kinect picks up the player’s throwing motions. It’s not quite as hard as the original Paperboy but looks like it’d be a very fun workout. This probably won’t ever be a commercial product but I’d love to try it out.
