Run, Gamer, Run - Treadmill Joystick

This image was lost some time after publication.

Our special friends over at Kotaku found this little gem: a treadmill game controller called the GameRunner. The faster you run, the more you get to play! I mean, this is obviously one of the better memes to come out of the gaming industry in years. I've already seen an exercycle with a few buttons so you can play some hot games, and this adds to the magic. Here's how it works: you're thumping along in your t-shirt and shorts, you wig out, save up for a controller, buy one, and then tell mom you're exercising while you lie on your old Sesame Street pillow and play CoD2 for fifteen hours straight. So essentially these things improve the market for gaming peripherals.
